> P.O.V. concludes its summer season with Hannah Weyer's ESCUELA (August
>27). A moving follow-up to P.O.V.'s LA BODA (The Wedding), the saga of
>the Luis family continues as Liliana and Elizabeth, two of the Luis
>family daughters, try to make their way in 21st century America. For
>Liliana who begins her freshman year in high school, this means dealing
>with the harsh demands of work in the fields, constant travel and
>endlessly changing schools, classes and friends as she migrates with her
>farm-worker family between California, Texas and Mexico.
>For Elizabeth, a limited education and the struggle to secure
>citizenship for her husband combine to create an uncertain economic
>outlook. In this compassionate portrait, ESCUELA continues the story of
>one Mexican-American family's drive towards a better future.
>Tune-in and Talk Back by sharing your point of view about the Broadcast!
>P.O.V.'s web site engages in ongoing dialogue about the film and the
>issues that it raises at www.pbs.org/pov.
