On-Demand Program:
Explore the connection between the juvenile justice system and the dropout rate among American teens, as well as the efforts by educators, law enforcement professionals, judges, youth advocates and the at-risk teens themselves to end what has become known as “the school-to-prison pipeline”  due in part to Zero Tolerance policies. Tavis Smiley takes his cameras across the country to present a narrative of what’s working on the frontlines of reform. This program is part of WXXI's American Graduate Initiative
