Standing in Two Worlds: Native American College Diaries
Broadcast Window: August 2, 2022 - December 31, 2022In this documentary, students take the microphone to share their stories as they strive to use a college education to support themselves, and their communities, without losing sight of who they are.
No Excuses: Race and Reckoning at a Chicago Charter School
Broadcast Window: August 10, 2022 - December 31, 2022Producer DJ Cashmere, who is white, spent seven years teaching Black and brown students at a Noble Street charter high school in Chicago. Noble followed a popular education reform model called "no excuses," which promised low-income students better test scores and increased access to college in exchange for hyper-strict discipline. After DJ left the classroom to become a journalist, Noble disavowed "no excuses," calling it "assimilationist, patriarchal, white supremacist, and anti-black." In this hour, DJ revisits his old school as it tries to remake itself.
