The new school makeover show, School Pride, premiered with great approval last Friday on NBC. The show features a team of teachers, parents, kids, and community members that come together to renovate their aging and broken down school. Each week the show will tackle a different school’s set of problems; many which schools across the nation are unable to remedy on their own.
