  This segment previews the PBS special 180 Days: Hartsville, which was produced by SC ETV in partnership with the National Black Programming Consortium. The documentary follows, over the course of an entire school year, the principals of two elementary schools in Hartsville, S.C. who are struggling to improve learning and opportunities for their children in the face of widespread poverty. With the help of a five-year, $5 million grant from Sunoco Corp. dedicated to aiding Darlington County schools, Thornwell School for the Arts has made great strides, and West Hartsville Elementary aims to achieve similar results.
