Dr. Marvin Thompson: Inform & Educate, Find Some Common Ground

Posted: Updated:

A new reality series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, "Blackboard Wars" centers on a high school tarnished by failing academic performance and stigmatized by a culture of violence.

Granted unprecedented access, cameras go behind the scenes to follow no-nonsense principal Dr. Marvin Thompson as he joins an unpredictable (and perhaps dangerous) mission to reinvent and revive the struggling school.

Dr. Thompson talks about his experiences this morning on Good Day L.A.

‘Blackboard Wars' airs Saturday night at 9:00pm on OWN.
