    Editor's Notes: Flint, Michigan made the news this year when poor planning and penny-pinching led to poisoning its water supply; this Emmy-Nominated edition of Dan Rather Reports shows how Michigan's financial crisis has both longer-lasting and less immediately visible effects. Following Detroit's school system for more than a year, A National Disgrace shows how underfunding and apathy are putting a generation of kids in a once-great city into a seemingly self-perpetuating cycle of low expectations with even lower outcomes.   Synopsis: Emmy Nominated for Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story in a News Magazine. An in-depth look at the deep challenges facing the Detroit Public Schools. From a fierce battle at the district level, to the heartbreaking story of a student trying to succeed, this report uses a local crisis to ask broad national questions.
