De-Leveling the System/One School

In the school district of South Orange & Maplewood, NJ there is a system of student academic placement called "Leveling" by which students are placed in levels 2-5. There has been a heated debate within the community on the effectiveness of this system. Watch and listen as the teachers, administrators, parents and students speak on the issue.

This is the prequel to upcoming feature length documentary, "De-leveling the System", where we look at; the district's plans to revise leveling, the community response, systems in other districts and we follow 5 students throughout the school year and get their perspective on academic placement.
