Is School Enough?

Premiered September 2013

Examine a new frontier that could reshape education — the importance of breaking out of the classroom and connecting students to the wider world. This approach encourages young people to learn from what they care about most. As one expert puts it, school should not just be preparation for life — but “life itself.” Featuring some of the nation’s most forward-thinking educators, the program chronicles powerful stories that show that young people, when given the opportunity to participate in solving real problems and pursuing projects important to them, will excel.
