From the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), the organization behind a number of great, informative web-based projects we've highlighted on this site, comes a feature documentary titled 180 Days: Inside An American High School.

From the title alone, you could probably guess what the film is about. But here's its synopsis anyway:

Following the day-to-day stories of students, parents, teachers and staff at the Washington Metropolitan High School (DC MET), “180 Days: Inside An American High School” is an intimate portrait of a public school that attempts to make a difference in the lives of students each and every day. Whether they are preparing for college or becoming teen moms, the students at DC Met face many challenges with spirit and resilience and welcome us to challenge many of our own assumptions as we travel with the first graduating class to commencement. Led by a charismatic and outspoken young principal, DC Met invites us in for an unprecedented first-hand account of life inside of the school reform movement.

The doc on will premiere TONIGHT, March 25th, continuing on the 26th, on your local PBS stations!

And by the way, if you'd like to support the ongoing efforts of the NBPC, you can do so by making contributions that will go towards their annual programming. To do so, click HERE.
