Set your TIVOs for this inspiring documentary about Manley Career Academy

On Sunday, October 15th, at noon, Carol Marin at Channel 5 will air a documentary entitled "Nobody Told Me". It is the inspiring story of a struggling high school in Lawndale, Manley Career Academy. In 1997 less than 10% of Manley's graduating class went on to college. In 2003, thanks in large part to the efforts of one heroic woman, Lila Leff, over 70% of Manley's graduating seniors headed to colleges and universities all over the country. Here is a link to a written version of the story.
