Soledad O’Brien’s new documentary “Don’t Fail Me,” highlights the good and bad of America’s public education system and premieres tonight on CNN at 8pm Eastern. Don’t miss it!

Why? You’ll see what is broken in today’s educational system, but also what many are doing to change this issue. It addresses topics of social-economic realities that gives advantages to one school system over another, teachers serving as heroes on the front lines of America’s small towns and inner cities, and students living with resilience despite it all to defy the odds and show how others can, too.

I rarely promote a television event; but I’m making an exception for this one. Don’t miss what is sure to be one of the most provocative looks at education in America in a long time.

Watch the trailer here.
