About the film: The gap in opportunities for different races in America remains extreme. Nowhere is this more evident than our nation’s top public schools. In New York City, where blacks and Hispanics make up 70 percent of the city’s school-aged population, they represent less than 5 percent at the city’s most elite public high schools. Tested looks at the important issue of racial diversity and public schools by following a dozen families in New York City from different racial, socio-economic and religious backgrounds. The film follows along as they prepare to pass the grueling standardized test to get into one of the city’s best high schools. The film includes the voices of such education experts as Pedro Noguera and Diane Ravitch as it explores such issues as access to a high-quality education, affirmative action and the model-minority myth.
