Standing in the Gap

Twenty years after the end of federally mandated busing, Denver Public Schools are re-segregated. Today, staggering educational achievement gaps exist between white students and those of color. As part of its ongoing coverage of race in Colorado, Rocky Mountain PBS took an in-depth look at race and education resulting in the four part documentary, Standing in the Gap.

Standing in the Gap is the recipient of the 2016 Heartland Emmy Award for a Public Affairs Program or Series.
