America's Schools: Who Gives a Damn
Parts I and II (1991)

This two-part series examines the causes and effects of the country's most compelling internal crisis--the failure to educate all students and the neglect of its prime natural resource, the children. A panel of educators, policy makers, and government and business leaders debate the probable culprits and potential saviors in what most agree is a national emergency. This panel includes Thomas Sobol, Commissioner of Education for the state of New York, Bill Moyers, the executive editor, Public Affairs, Henry Cisneros, the mayor of San Antonio, TX, and Adam Ubanski; the president of the Rochester Teachers Association.
