Synopsis

Documentary that examines the American experiment of universal education, providing a history of public education from the American Revolution to today. The program looks at the efforts of Thomas Jefferson and others to create a common system of tax-supported schools that would mix people of different backgrounds; the spread of public schooling in the 19th century; the massive wave of immigration in the early 20th century; the Civil Rights era; and the refomrs and turmoil that mark our public school systems today.
