Doors Open is a short film featuring three new schools that opened their doors for the first time in Boston in the fall of 2012 - the Margarita Muniz Academy (munizacademy.org/), the city’s first two-way bilingual Spanish-English High School; the Dudley Street Neighborhood Charter School (dudleystreetschool.org/), a partnership between a great neighborhood organization and a teacher training program modeled after medical residencies in teaching hospitals; and KIPP Academy Boston (kippma.org/kabms-about.php), a middle school launched by a national network of high-performing charter schools. On their own, each school offers a compelling story – of vision, mission, and bright hopes for kids. Yet, looked at together in this film, they are also part of an even bigger story about breakthroughs in old debates about public education.
