- Children in America's schools with Bill Moyers /
- A look at public school districts in Ohio, this program examines the extreme range in physical conditions and educational opportunities presented in the rural, suburban, and city schools of Ohio. Discusses how the property tax funding of schools has created a situation where some districts can only spend 3,000 dollars per pupil in old, unsafe, dilapidated buildings, while other districts can afford to spend 12,000 dollars per pupil per year while maintaining modern, state-of-the-art environments. Includes a panel discussion moderated by Bill Moyers.
