By one measure, more than half of children in public schools today come from low-income families. The new documentary OYLER explores one school’s radical approach to helping more of those kids succeed, by combining academic, health, and social services under one roof.

Based on the award-winning Marketplace series “One School, One Year,” OYLER tells the story of a Cincinnati public school fighting to break the cycle of poverty in its Urban Appalachian neighborhood, where senior Raven Gribbins aims to be the first in her troubled family to graduate and go to college. When long-time principal Craig Hockenberry's job is threatened, it becomes clear it's a make-or-break year for both of them. Produced and directed by Amy Scott, in association with American Public Media’s Marketplace.

Kai Ryssdal of Marketplace hosted this West Coast premiere screening, followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker and other special guests.
