School choice, socioeconomic difference, and being fourteen

Central Standard: On Education, focuses on education as seen through the eyes of five 8th grade students at very different publicly-funded schools across Chicagoland. The stories follow these students' transition to high school. See the different layouts, strategies, and cultures that define the schools, a representation that takes on greater meaning when viewed in the contrasts among the different communities, representing both inner city and suburban systems, and both high and lower-performing schools. All of the schools are publicly-funded, including one charter school. Central Standard is brought to you by WTTW11 and Scrappers Film Group in partnership with PBS Digital Studios and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
