SYNOPSIS

SCHOOL is a dramatic four-hour documentary series that chronicles the development of our nation’s public education system from Colonial times to the 21st century. Produced by Stone Lantern Films, presented by KCET/Hollywood, and narrated by Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, SCHOOL recaptures the idealism of the early advocates of public education and continues with an unflinching look at the experiments and challenges in classrooms today.

Placing today’s issues in historical context are interviews with witnesses and leading experts in education history.
