Amy Scott is Tom's guest this morning. Her voice is familiar to anyone who is a regular NPR listener because she’s the Education Correspondent for Marketplace. Amy is based here in Baltimore; her office is downstairs from Tom's here at WYPR.

During the 2012-13 school year, Amy did a series of stories for Marketplace called “One Year, One School,” in which she reported on a community school in Cincinnati, OH called Oyler. Tomorrow night at MICA, she will screen her new documentary film that came out of that experience. Oyler is also the title of the film, that Scott produced and directed.

The Maryland Institute College of Art's screening of Oyler will take place tomorrow night at 7:00 in the Falvey Hall at the Brown Center . It will be followed by a panel discussion that includes Craig Hockenberry and Raven Gribbins who are featured in the film, along with some folks who are involved in the community schools movement here in Baltimore. Tom Hall will be the moderator.
