WATCH: A Tale Of Three Cities

Several major American cities have accepted the challenge of school reform, but none with more energy, commitment and public attention than Philadelphia, Chicago and Seattle. Those three cities, however, have taken dramatically different approaches to solving the problems of urban public education: Philadelphia brought in a minister/lawyer as Superintendent; Seattle turned its schools over to a retired 4-Star Army General; in Chicago the Mayor took what some have called “a businessman’s approach” to school reform.

Follow the successes and setbacks of these three school reformers - David Hornbeck in Philadelphia, John Stafford in Seattle, and Richard Daley in Chicago. The stakes are high in all three cities–and in cities all across America.
