This half-hour special program by a local station went behind the headlines of New York City’s troubled public schools and examined one of the many issues—overcrowding. Reporter Celeste Ford secured unlimited access to a first grade classroom in Brooklyn. By observing the teacher’s struggle to keep the children focused, the students’ efforts to learn and the parents aspiring to do the best they could, this program brought a current urban issue home to the public in stunning personal terms.
