This American Life: Harper High School, Chicago

A riveting two-part radio documentary by the folks at This American Life that deals with violence in the Chicago school system. Here’s their synopsis:

“We spent five months at Harper High School in Chicago, where last year alone 29 current and recent students were shot. 29. We went to get a sense of what it means to live in the midst of all this gun violence, how teens and adults navigate a world of funerals and Homecoming dances.”
