Summary
To have a shot at college, students must first believe they can get into college. This program shows the positive things that can happen when the dream of a college education is nurtured in classrooms and communities where expectations previously had been low. By spotlighting innovative approaches for motivating and teaching children - from the Upward Bound initiative in Cleveland that can only serve a few students, to GEAR UP's creation of a college-going culture in a Latino community in Texas, to the efforts of Project GRAD in Atlanta to get all 8th-graders ready to succeed in high school and then in college - the video documents both the rewards of expecting the best and the challenges communities face to ensure that their schools serve all students
