Frontline: A Subprime Education/The Education of Omarina
A Subprime Education
FRONTLINE examines allegations of fraud at for-profit colleges.
Premiere Date: Tuesday, September 13
In a one-hour special, FRONTLINE presents two reports that build on its education reporting. A Subprime Education examines allegations of fraud and predatory behavior in the troubled for-profit college industry, and the collapse of Corinthian Colleges. Then, The Education of Omarina shows how an innovative program to stem the high school dropout crisis has affected one girl’s journey, from a public middle school in the Bronx to an elite New England private school, and now on to college. The hour airs as part of PBS’s Spotlight Education, a week of primetime programming focused on the challenges facing America’s education system. | Official Website
