America Reframed: Night School

America Reframed: Night School: A year in the life of three students at an arduous night-school program in Indianapolis. One is a single dad who needs a diploma to get better work; another dropped out when she became pregnant almost 40 years ago; and the third dreams of being a nurse.

Every year, over a million students drop out of high school. They may complete their graduate equivalency degrees, but then they discover they’re still struggling to get good jobs. For some in Indianapolis, there’s another option: a night school program that will get them their full high school diploma – if they can complete a tough curriculum that includes algebra and biology.
