Preparing Girls for the Future at Young Women's Leadership Charter School

Last year, the Young Women's Leadership Charter School of Chicago celebrated its 10th anniversary. Leaders at the south side school extol its distinguishing features, separating the all-girls school from regular schools. They point to the small class size and a perfect graduation record for the class of 2010. But is the school really doing enough to serve its students? Co-director Michelle Russell talks about the future of Chicago's only all-girls public school.
