About This Show
Show Info: “Schooled” gives the insider’s story of America’s public schools, through the eyes of the students, parents and educators. We begin with Savannah Zayas, a teen mother in a struggling North Philadelphia high school who’s determined to escape poverty. Season 1 is based on more than a year of interviews with Savannah, who’s fought to overcome horrific abuse, and avoid the problems of the world around her — a drug-infused area of Philly known as “the badlands.” Her goal: to graduate high school.
