Summer program looks to engage students in Central Falls

Providence, R.I. – A summer program wrapping up this week in Central Falls asked middle school students to identify the biggest challenge they think their city faces and design a solution. It's part of a summer school that uses projects instead of traditional coursework. The aim is to get students more engaged in school. But as WRNI's Elisabeth Harrison reports, the program suffers from many of the same challenges the district faces during the regular school year.
