Hard Times at Douglas High DVD
At Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore, MD, the expectations raised by NCLB have reached a critical point. Academy Award® winning filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond (I Am a Promise: The Children of Stanton Elementary School) offer a yearlong look inside a storied institution at a time when its very existence is in doubt. From cautionary profiles to triumphant tales, Hard Times at Douglass High serves as a reminder that education is inevitably an achievement of people, not policy.

Comments about this product:
A hard hitting documentary that portrays the difficulties that inner city kids face on a daily basis. As a fan of "The Wire", this is a great follow up for anyone that watched the fourth season. Several of the characters in the fourth season are based on students from this documentary. A must see!!
