Tony Danza Goes to School

In case you missed it, there was a great piece in the Inquirer today about Tony Danza's teaching stint at Northeast High for a reality show.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out, how real it actually is, how the kids end up being portrayed on TV. Cameras are not always kind to Philadelphia kids - I remember the episode of MTV's "Real World" when the Philadelphia Soul and the Real World kids teamed up to build a playground at Northern Home in northwest Philly. There was a lot of editing to make the neighborhood around the home look very "urban" and one of the cast mentioned something about the lack of green space, which couldn't have been further from the truth. Editing is important and I hope the show portrays our kids in a fair manner.
