This American Life's Harper High School

This American Life has produced some great radio and some great journalism over the years, but their recent two part series on Harper High School in Chicago has to stand as some of their best work. Three reporters spent the first semester of the 2012-13 school year at the high school and produced a great piece of work about urban life, students and teachers. It's also a great look at the passion and commitment that great educators bring to their jobs and the toll that it takes on them. It's amazing piece of work.
