The Sheff v. O’Neill lawsuit, and its resulting school integration programs, offer a unique and compelling look into critical societal issues as lived by Connecticut families, and has become a national model even as it generates controversy in Connecticut. In recent years, nearly half of Hartford’s students attended racially and economically integrated schools yet, more than half still attend low-performing Hartford schools, prompting a recent lawsuit challenging the underpinnings of Sheff.

This one-hour documentary film was funded in part by both a $20,000 CTH Planning Grant and a $35,000 CTH Implementation Grant.
