Description

Philadelphia profiles a 17-year-old student, Brenda Gergely, "who is determined to make it out" of school and go to college. The story looks at how an educational program for children for low-income families, the White-Williams Scholars, has motivated the student to get better grades and has inflamed her ambition to continue her education. The report exposes the low educational standards of many high schools as a possible barrier to students' way to college.
