Short Description: 
Does reorganizing Portland's high schools make sense?

Portland's high school dropout rate is the highest in the metropolitan area. While the statewide rate declined last year, Portland high school students are dropping out at twice the rate - 8.2 percent - of students in other Oregon communities. The city's high schools are also grappling with other issues: a growing number of students opting for GED credentials, budget shortfalls, and demands from parents for greater accountability to the community.

Toni Tabora-Roberts interviews Curtis Choy about his film "Manilatown is in the Heart".  A favorite at the DisOrient film festival in April, the film is a tribute to late poet and activist Al Robles. 

In the 1970s, Robles was an activist involved in the San Francisco I-Hotel struggle, a fight which is now burned into Filipino-American civil rights history.

After a decade-long protest, many low-income elderly Manong were evicted, effectively dismantling the last enclave of downtown San Francisco's historic Manilatown community.

"Manilatown is in the Heart"will show for one night only in Portland on Friday, June 26th at the Hollywood Theater.

On Flashpoints, remembering the life of human rights leader and liberation theologist, Father Jean Juste, and Helen Caldicott speaks about the nuclear threat.

Revolutionary Haitian priest Father Jean-Juste died on May 27th at the age of 62. In jail and out, he preached liberation of the poor, release of prisoners, human rights for all, and a fair distribution of wealth. He constantly challenged both the powers of Haiti and the US to stop killing, starving and imprisoning the poor. He slept on the floor of his church, St. Claire, which provided meals to thousands of starving children and adults every week. Father Gerry will be missed but not forgotten by the Haitian people, and by all who embrace true democracy and justice throughout the world.
