Former Vice Lord Sets Kids Straight: Last Chance High (Episode 7)

Subscribe to VICE News here:

In Episode 7 of Last Chance High we meet 13-year-old Keontay, who is enamored with gang life, his disabled mother Takita, who has lost all hope of prying him from the streets, and a former gang chief nicknamed Shotgun, who has a plan to help them both.

On Chicago’s West Side, there is a school for the city’s most at-risk youth โ€” the Moses Montefiore Academy. Most of the students at Montefiore have been kicked out of other schools for aggressive behavior, and many have been diagnosed with emotional disorders.

Last Chance High takes viewers inside Montefiore’s classrooms, and into the homes of students who are one mistake away from being locked up or committed to a mental hospital.

Look out for new episodes of Last Chance High every Thursday.
