An excerpt from the description:

 On May 9th MTV News will premiere “The Dropout Chronicles,” a stark portrait of three high school students facing unique obstacles and all on the brink of walking away from their high school diplomas.  The new documentary depicts how young people from similar backgrounds make different choices about their education and how varied interventions by teachers, parents, friends and other factors impact the outcome of these choices.  Sean, from Miami, finds school boring and often cuts class, but wants to make his father proud and become the first male in his family to graduate high school.  Glendy, of the Bronx, has already been held back a year and faces a daunting daily commute just to get to school.  Maxine, from San Diego, is only one exam away from her diploma…or so she thinks.  Only one will graduate.  “The Dropout Chronicles” follows these individuals as their fates unfold, premiering May 9th on MTV2 at 8:30 PM ET/PT, with a special sneak peek on MTV at 2:00 PM ET/PT that same day.

E.C. 🙂
