Oprah’s Special Report: American Schools In Crisis


Wow! Oprah offered tonight a Special Report: American Schools In Crisis. It’s great comparison of some of the best and worst schools in the U.S. I wish my grandchildren could attend one of those best high schools.

Did you see the can-do school administrators and community members?

Most Americans have no idea how bad things really are…part two of our special report. What can we do about schools in crisis? Bill Gates reveals his cutting-edge ideas. Then, meet an NBA star who is determined to change the future of America’s children. Plus, an eye-opening experiment that parents need to hear about. And, Lisa Ling reports on the first-ever high school in prison.

Oprah asserts that a generation is failing…stand up, get inspired, and fight for our children.

This is one of the best special reports about the status of education and schooling as seen by non-educators.
