Summary, etc.: SelectED examines the truths and challenges of public urban education as seen through the lives of high school students at Whitney Young High School. This Chicago public school began as a dream to create a fully integrated school in a racially divided city, and within a riot ravaged neighborhood in the 1970s. Through interwoven stories, SelectED explores the leadership, triumphs, and losses in one of the most culturally and economically diverse schools in the country that has stood the test of time. A must see for parents, teachers and politicians, SelectED is a revealing look into the lives of students who put it all on the line to be selected, proving that a free education is never without a cost.
