Arguably, it is clear that inner city public schools sometimes do not offer the same opportunities as private schools and are often predominately filled with minorities. In this short film, Idris, an African American boy is filmed for over 13 years as he attends an elite Manhattan prep school. Through past experiences of his parents, Joe Brewster and Michele Stephenson, they choose to enroll him in an elite school in New York because they knew the importance of his education. His race is one focus of his experience through the private school system as he speaks on being picked on because of the way he talks and how certain teachers treated him while in this school system.
