Guest: Vonda Veeland, Black Rock HS Principal, Subject of the Documentary “The Bad Kids” Remember the bad kids in high school? The ones who talked backed to the teacher and disrupted class? That is, if they came to class at all. They partied hard, fell into drugs, got pregnant, dropped out or simply disappeared. Vonda Viland knows all about the bad kids. She is the principal at Black Rock High School, and when it comes to kids acting out, she’s seen it all. But she is not discouraged. In fact, her optimism about the future for the kids at her school is the subject of a new documentary called “The Bad Kids.” The movie is streaming now until April 15 at pbs.org.
