The critically acclaimed fourth season of “The Wire” tackles head-on the challenges facing urban schools, with a sharp focus on a Baltimore middle school. Series creator and former journalist David Simon says this season of “The Wire” aims to “address American ideas about equal opportunity and how true we are to that ideal, and look at the portion of the city that has been left behind and why things aren't working.”
Be the first to watch this next episode of “The Wire” before it airs on HBO the following Sunday, and then discuss the show and the challenges of our underfunded, underserved public schools with Simon and “Wire” producer and writer Ed Burns.
