180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School - Film Screening & Panel Discussion

March 27th, 6pm

at The Arc Theater
1901 Mississippi Ave, SE, Washington DC, 20020

Join WHUT, Howard University Television, The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington, Sasha Bruce Youthwork, the United Planning Organization, and Black Public Media for a film screening of "180 Days: A Year Inside An American High School"  The screening will be followed by a panel discussion, with community leaders in Education, and a small reception.

Following the day-to-day stories of students, parents, teachers and staff at the Washington Metropolitan High School (DC MET), “180 Days: Inside An American High School” is an intimate portrait of a public school that attempts to make a difference in the lives of students each and every day.

Whether they are preparing for college or becoming teen moms, the students at DC Met face many challenges with spirit and resilience and welcome us to challenge many of our own assumptions as we travel with the first graduating class to commencement. Led by a charismatic and outspoken young principal, DC Met invites us in for an unprecedented first-hand account of life inside of the school reform movement.

To educators, Washington Metropolitan High School (DC Met) is an alternative school with a devoted staff. To district leaders, it is a failure. To many of the school’s students, it is home – a safe haven from sometimes unsparingly difficult lives. Whatever one’s vantage, 180 Days: A Year inside an American High School provides an intimate portrait of this fledgling school’s day-to-day stories, condensing a full school year – 180 days – into four hours (2 two-hour episodes).

With a dynamic and charismatic young principal and five remarkable kids at the center of the story, 180 Days invites viewers in for an unprecedented first-hand look of life inside of a school that tries to meet the needs of some of our nation’s most challenged students.

RSVP Now! Space is limited!
