SEED School : Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly

In Anacostia, a notoriously poor and violent section of Washington, D.C., a new kind of school is changing hundreds of lives. It’s called The SEED School. It’s a public, charter, college preparatory boarding school, the first of it’s kind. Students are chosen by lottery, not test scores. It’s expensive, but it works, and its founders hope to start similar schools all around the country.

Watch SEED School on PBS. See more from Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly.
