School Days: Student Tales

About This Episode


Remember school? It’s where kids learn a lot, and make friends for life. It’s also a maelstrom of swirling loyalties, where knowledge sometimes comes only after pain. This "Stories from the Stage" looks at school through the eyes of teen storytellers. Cecilia Viveiros battles a hidden learning disability that leaves teachers, her parents, and Cecilia herself baffled; Anna Kamens reluctantly welcomes a fourth grade newcomer who struggles socially; and Furquann Syed, teased for his name and Muslim heritage, finds that violent solutions have a down side. Three storytellers, three interpretations of School Days, hosted by Wes Hazard.
