180 Days: Hartsville

In 180 Days: Hartsville viewers will experience a year in the life of one Southern town's efforts to address the urgent demand for reform in American public schools, and watch what happens when the systems that can either fuel or diffuse that reform - bureaucracy, economic opportunity, and fixed mindsets - interact and intersect. Is Hartsville an anomaly, or do its successes point towards some transferrable and sustainable solutions? Can a community really change the fortunes of a generation by doubling down on their neighborhood schools? Or does the stark reality of the 21st century global economy outweigh the impact of one rural town's efforts to prepare its children to compete in that economy?

Separate But Unequal
Review by Rico A. on 07/17/20 review stating Separate But Unequal
28 July 2015 This program is an eye opener for those individuals who never experienced racial discrimination in the public education sector. The use of the term high bar as a metaphor to demonstrate the disparate differences and consequences of attending sub par schools compared to superior schools receiving substantial financial resources is aptly appropriate. Pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps in this context is geared to fail. The battle of the public schools today is presented in a more subtle, covert fashion compared to 1954s Brown v Board of Education issues.
