Manchester, NH is ranked by many notable media outlets including CNN, Kiplinger, and the Wall Street Journal as one of the best places to live in America.

However, problems in Manchester's public schools are creating a crisis in this Boston bedroom community. The teachers are working without a contract, the school district has not had a budget in over a year, and there are talks of redistricting, layoffs and more.

Southside Middle School surveyed its staff's morale. Only 25% of the employees responded and, of those, more than half said they didn't trust management or even their fellow teachers.

Kim Organek, the new principal at Southside, is committed to making things better. She knows that all of the finger-pointing and complaining that is going on is not improving the situation.

It's the kids who suffer.

In Part 1 of this two-part video series, Will Bowen introduces you to teachers, students and staff from Southside Middle, reveals the negativity in their environment and the six-month plan to transform this school.

This is a film documentary directed and edited by renowned photographer John Gladman.
