- Program Description
A proﬁle of the Jeremiah E. Burke High School, a public institution whose experiences are emblematic of many high schools across the country. After losing its accreditation in 1995, the Burke devoted the next three years to soul-searching and signiﬁcant restructuring. Today, the school has regained its accreditation and is divided into smaller learning communities with a renewed focus on improving student achievement. In 2001, all eligible seniors were accepted into either two- or four-year colleges. Despite these successes, 63 percent of Burke students in the class of 2003 may not graduate because they have failed their MCAS exams. This statistic raises a question that weaves throughout the ﬁlm: What does it really take for public education to leave no child behind? A Day in the Life senior producer Linda Garmon was joined in the A Day in the Life effort by a group of independent ﬁlmmakers, all of whom have WGBH production credits to their names. Included are Theodore Bogosian (Nova, Anatomy of a Homicide: Life on the Street), Nancy Porter (Nova, American Experience), Eric Stange (Nova, American Experience) and Noland Walker (Africans in America). Jean Dunoyer (Nova, Frontline) is the editor.
