From Chicago Sun-Times:

The School Project, a six-part documentary series that will be released in segments over the 2014-2015 school year, will look at local perspectives on the school closings in Chicago, the expansion of charter schools, standardized testing, school discipline policies, and the history of reforms and educational models. The first film in the series, “Chicago Schools: The Worst in the Nation?” premiered at the end of October at an event at the Chicago History Museum that also included a panel discussion. This project is a collaboration between various media groups including Kartemquin Films, WTTW, and Story Corps.
