Most of the interviews were transferred to VHS in August 1990.
Summary:
Youth speak about their teachers and experience at Kramer Junior High School, located in the Anacostia neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Overall, they would like more help and attention from their teachers, and they believe discipline should be based on a reward system, instead of demerits and negative behavior. Interviewer James Campbell asks the youth if any of them have thought about dropping out of school. Most stated they have not, stating that they need an education to get a job, and a few of them would like to go to college.
