Burkett spent nine months in Prior Lake High School outside of Minneapolis to discover what really happens after the bell rings. She sees it all: the teachers gripe sessions, the classes, the parent-teacher meetings, and the students hangouts. She witnesses the minor rebellions, the ill-informed college decision making process and a threat made against a teacher. Thoroughly fascinating, Another Planet offers a rare glimpse of the struggles and the triumphs that occur everyday of the high school experience.
