Public Education in America is going through a period of great introspection. Everything from standardized testing to the length of the school day is up for debate. Today Visionaries begins a series of programs that looks beyond the controversies to take you inside schools that offer new models that give us insight into the impact a school can have on young people and the society they will soon lead. You are about to meet Irasema Salcido who will take us on a journey through a school day at the Chavez schools in Washington DC. We will meet students from every walk of life who come together in four schools to discover the power they have to make a positive impact on the course of local, national and world events.
