Probably way more intense than Degrassi

At 9 p.m. CT on Sunday, October 26, the National Geographic Channel will premier the documentary special Inside New Orleans High - a compressed look at life with the students and teachers at Walter L. Cohen High School in New Orleans. The high school, located Uptown near Dryades and Louisiana, is according to a NGC press release "one of the most dangerous high schools in the country... where more money is spent on security than on books, and violent gangs dominate the school." (It's also the alma mater of sissy rappers Big Freedia and Katey Red, who I profiled in Gambit a few months ago.) The show intimately follows three students and one first-year teacher through six months of the school year at Cohen.
