(Bethesda, Maryland--February 12, 2015) THREE OF CHANGE partners with the Peabody Award winning team behind 180 Days to design the second series, “180 Days: Hartsville”
In this second series of the Peabody Award winning documentary we leave the urban school district for a small town called Hartsville in rural South Carolina, where an entire town is trying to make an exceptional use of their elementary school system.
“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?”
Coming to PBS 2015.
