ATLANTA -- The news is filled with stories on the problems in schools.

11Alive News presented something different on July 17.

The Education of Dreams is the story of a school built to inspire and defy expectations, The Ron Clark Academy.

Recently, the school graduated its first class of 8th graders, and they snagged more than $800,000 in scholarships.

One of the techniques the school uses to help kids is allowing them to teach a class.

11Alive Kids and Schools Reporter Donna Lowry and Photojournalist Kathy Bourn have covered the story The Ron Clark Academy since before it opened.

They take an in-depth look at this inspiring school in the 11Alive News Special The Education of Dreams.
