U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor returns to her grade school in the Bronx, which is scheduled to close.
She credits Blessed Sacrament School with giving her a strong foundation for success, despite the limited opportunities that many children have in underprivileged communities.
Anderson Cooper walked the hallways with Sotomayor to find out why the Catholic school was such a critical part of her personal journey, and why it's being shut down with more than 20 other similar schools. She told him that she wouldn't be where she is today if it weren't for the educational institution she attended thanks to her mother's hard work to earn tuition.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
