From classrooms to urban farming experiments, from trade schools to schools for young mothers, Our School tests preconceptions of what’s failing and what’s working in Detroit for young people.
Our School is a critical study of the Detroit Public School System through the eyes of high school students and their teachers. Interleaving the prismatic complexities of teenage life with the structural narrative of a once prosperous, but deeply segregated, industrial city, Our School seeks to negotiate the racial, economic, and systematic problems of urban public education.
