271: Best Interests

Aug 20, 2004
Stories about adults struggling to figure out what is in the best interest of some child. And in situations where, what is best is not so clear.
  • Colin Dunn had an A average as an eighth grader, and he was in a program for gifted kids. But he hated school. The spring before he graduated, he figured out that if he simply stopped going to school for the rest of the year, he'd still graduate with a B average. So that's what he did. Host Ira Glass talks to Colin and his dad, Corey, who had to deal with Colin's rebellion. (7 minutes) EducationTeenagers
