We Live Here: A Neighborhood School On the Brink of Closure

Over the last 15 years, cities across the country have faced wave after wave of school closures. Places like Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia closed down dozens of buildings at a time. 

But the district that closed the most schools during that time was Detroit Public Schools. 

Since 2000, the city has seen nearly 200 school buildings shuttered. 

So, what happens to a neighborhood — and the kids who live there — when a school closes? 

Join us as we try to answer that question in We Live Here, a documentary about the history and future of neighborhood schools in Detroit.
