This film evokes a particularly heartbreaking version of that question as it examines the plight of Save Our Future, a tenuously funded Los Angeles charter school designed for at-risk teenage students. Viewers follow the school's founders, Charlotte Austin Jordan and her husband, Kenneth Jordan, on a journey filled with threats of closure, implacable red tape roadblocks, and mounting anxiety concerning the fate of dozens of youth for whom this is a last chance at a high school diploma. It's the battle of their lives, and they enlist the help of every stakeholder and supporter who will listen. But the earnest band of educators, parents, and students finally exhaust every means of survival available to them, leading back to that venerable riddle: When the school is finally forced to shut down, who will notice?6 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

The Last shot [electronic resource (video)] / by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584; Meridian Education Corporation(SAGE)1796967;
Prelude to a High School Shooting (5:08) -- Teenager With a Gun (5:37) -- High School Shooting (2:39) -- Community Response to Shooting (1:45) -- Signs of Teenage Depression (6:53)When Warren's girlfriend breaks up with him in a particularly cruel manner, he buys a gun and exacts his bloody revenge at the school dance. This emotionally charged dramatization graphically portrays the growing problem of school violence. A radio show, which features a psychologist and one of the survivors, frames the tragic story, providing insights into the warning signs of impending violence and how such an incident could perhaps be prevented in real life. The mounting pressures on Warren are also examined, along with the behavior of those around him, including his teachers, parents, siblings, and friends. Warning: This program contains scenes of violence.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

It also suggests models for fleshing out incomplete plans, and for making anti-violence presentations to students. A 101-page facilitator's guide makes this resource adaptable to individual schools and districts, and provides teaching materials for a workshop on this urgent topic.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
