180 Days: Hartsville
One Town - Two Schools - One Family - One Year… Experience a
year inside two elementary schools in Hartsville, South Carolina in this
groundbreaking PBS special. The film highlights the roles of two
elementary school principals and the district superintendent, Dr. Edward
Ingram. These are critical leadership roles that determine resources
and focus for the schools and the entire system.
180 Days: Hartsville also follows one family and the struggles
of a working single mother and her fifth grade son. Is Hartsville an
anomaly, or does its successes point towards some universally applicable
solutions? Can education and community leadership really change the
fortunes of a generation by not letting its youngest children fall
through the cracks?
As part of ETV’s community outreach ETV will broadcast After 180 Days: Hartsville,
a panel discussion program immediately following the national program.
The panel will explore in more detail the vision for Hartsville, how
Sonoco Products Company is making a difference, and how other school
districts can learn from the Hartsville experience as well as look at
recent developments in statewide public policy and education issues that
need to come together to transform education in our state.
