Description

It’s 2015 and one Brooklyn middle school is about to receive a huge influx of new students. 


Reporter Chana Joffe Walt follows  what happens when the School for International Studies’s 6th grade class swells from 30 mostly Latino, Black and Middle Eastern students, to a class of 103 —an influx almost entirely driven by white families.


Everyone wants “what’s best for the school” but it becomes clear that they don’t share the same vision of what “best” means.

the White, the Black, the Hispanic ... Let's forget about the Asian, because they don't exist? Seriously, this has little to do with racism. It's everything to do with social economical class. And if you see PTA as a commercial entity, then everything makes sense.

The content of the show, i am referring to the PTA meetings, is actually very interesting. however, the reporter, great voice that she has, is misleading and a little to goal set on making this particular school case about race. i have only heard the first episode, and frankly, I am not seeing a race story, frankly. It seems to be more of a story about a group of people who feel their role and importance in the community is being taken away by the newcomers. change is hard, no matter what color you are.
