Re-Forming Englewood

20061004_englewood5Based on a year at Englewood High, this documentary, "Re-Forming Englewood," seems like it might be worth checking out for anyone who's interested in Ren10, the history and impact of school turnaround efforts over time, or Englewood in particular: 

"The documentary follows the transfer of Englewood students to Hyde Park, another low performing school, and the newest version of educational reform: charter schools. By exploring Englewood Tech Academy and its closure; the effect on Hyde Park; and the birth of Chicago's first all-boys charter school, Urban Prep, this documentary explores the past, present and future of education in a neighborhood with some of the citys poorest test scores."
