Ed Reynolds is the principal of New York's alternative West Side high school. This is where the NYC school system sends its most troubled students. Only 5% of the students live with their parents. 25% of the female students are parents themselves and the school's reading level is below 4th grade."When I walked in and got a sense of what the odds were, the first thing I wanted to do was to run away." Said Reynolds.
Two days in the school reveled the challenges that Reynolds faces as he tries to keep a student on the right path and in school.
