Education on TV--On Wednesday, Aug. 23, from 7 to 8 p.m., KOB-4 will air the local documentary “Opportunity to Succeed.” The film examines New Mexico’s recent effort to close the achievement gap in education through a holistic approach that involves “community schools.” What does this entail and how will it work? How will communities engage? How can diverse issues such as culture, language, poverty, hunger and domestic violence enter into the conversation about test scores and educational standards? The documentary, directed by Emmy Award-winning producer/director Chris Schueler, seeks to answer these questions by highlighting programs across the state that have successfully responded to the challenges of these educational issues. From a Pre-K program in Albuquerque’s South Valley to the only bilingual middle school in the state in Las Cruces, “Opportunity to Succeed” points out tangible examples of ideas that are changing education in our state. The program was made possible by Youth Development Inc., the New Mexico Public Education Department, the New Mexico Human Services Department and Orion International Technologies.
