The Teacher Shortage Problem: Making the Grade at P.S. 25 (58:16)
Facing a severe teacher shortfall for the 2000-2001 academic year, New
York City scrambled to staff its worst-performing school district by
crash-training hundreds of eager teaching fellows. In this program,
NewsHour correspondent John Merrow presents five reports that track
several of these brand-new teachers from opening day to summer recess as
they learn the ropes at P.S. 25, in Brooklyn. Balancing their
idealistic views of teaching are hard-won insights that demonstrate a
powerful determination to overcome discouragement brought on by long
hours, inadequate resources, and classroom discipline problems.
Making a Difference: Great Teachers, Part 1 (28:44)
This documentary focuses on three teachers who have made a positive
impact—academically or personally—on their students’ lives. Selected as a
result of an essay contest that asked students to write about the
teacher who had most challenged and inspired them, the teachers are
shown at work in the classroom, doing what they excel at: teaching and
making a difference.

A diverse learning environment benefits everyone, but it can put

the rewards of a diverse learning atmosphere.

New York City middle school students and contrasts political rhetoric
with the reality of American schooling. A profile of the two students

system and how disproportionate funding affects the quality of
education. The program also features advocates for educational reform,
who debate what the Democratic and Republican parties can do to improve
Teaching with Technology Series (2:07:24)
Technology has put a whole new spin on education, redefining the role of
teachers and reshaping the classroom learning experience. Drawing on
