Bronx School Shines in PBS Autism Report
A Bronx school for children with autism stars on television tonight.
A PBS "NewsHour" segment at 7 p.m. features Public School 176X in Co-op City. It serves nearly 700 children with the disorder.
Part of a "NewsHour" series on autism hosted by legendary news anchor Robert McNeil, the segment compares PS 176X with a small charter school in Manhattan that boasts one teacher for every student.
