William Peters follows Jane Elliott's schoolroom exercise of dividing an otherwise homogenous group of elementary school kids by their eye color.
This documentary was followed up with "A Class Divided", a 1985 Frontline episode in which The Eye of the Storm is shown to the original participating students—now adults 15 years later—and Elliott is given a chance to find out how much of the lesson her students retained.
