Description : Abstract
Hope Kelly reports on the Timilty Middle School in Boston. Kelly notes that the Timilty School is a magnet school with successful reading and math programs for its students. Kelly adds that there is a waiting list to get into the school. Kelly interviews William Moran (Timilty School) and Shirley Gonsalves (Timilty School) about the school and its programs. Moran says that the students at the Timilty School are successful. He adds that many come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Gonsalves talks about the benefits of school desegregation. Kelly reviews the history of school desegregation in Boston. She notes that many critics cite the absence of middle-class and white students as a reason for the continued failure of the Boston Public Schools. Kelly reports that the Timilty School was named a National School of Excellence in 1989. Kelly's report is accompanied by footage of students and teachers in classrooms and in the hallways of the Timilty School. This tape contains additional footage of students and teachers in classrooms at the Timilty School.
