On this episode of Reveal, we look back at the Pentagon Papers – how they became public and why they’re so important. But this isn’t just a history lesson. You can draw a straight line from what happened in the '70s to today's debate about government secrets and what happens to the people who expose them.

Find out what's happened since we first told you about 40 years of alleged abuse and neglect of people with disabilities at specialty rehab centers across the U.S. We teamed up with New Hampshire Public Radio health and science reporter Jack Rodolico to unveil how these for-profit facilities thrived on public dollars with little oversight.

In this hour of Reveal, we’re looking into Title IX, the historic law meant to bridge the gender gap in schools. We mostly see this rule play out in school sports teams, but behind the athleticism and fanfare, there's a story of failure. Reveal reporters go inside campuses to discover that there’s actually been a decline in female coaches since the law’s outset. And how exactly does the government make sure that a school is following Title IX? These answers and more on the next Reveal.

The U.S. Supreme Court is about to make a decision that could affect college admissions across the country. And Texas’ Top 10 Percent Rule plays a starring role. On this episode of Reveal, reporter Neena Satija, of our partner The Texas Tribune, tells us how an attempt to boost diversity in Texas colleges could, paradoxically, end affirmative action. She also takes a long look at the Top 10 Percent Rule and whether it allows students from economically diverse backgrounds to attend the state's top public universities. We’ll hear from two high-achieving young Texans: Genesis Morales and Grayson Rutherford. They’re college-bound students who attend high schools only 10 miles from one another but whose experiences are worlds apart. We’ll also take you to Berkeley, California, and look at that school district’s integration plan. Over five decades, that plan has worked, for the most part – Berkeley’s kindergarten through eighth grade system is a model for the rest of the country on how to integrate schools. But the city’s single high school faces unexpected challenges.

Earlier this year, Reveal reporter Will Evans told us about the discrimination certain temp workers face. In case you missed it: A blatant system of racial discrimination pervades the temporary jobs sector – which is one of the nation's fastest-growing industries in terms of employment. So what happened when we revealed that some people were hired based not on their résumé, but on the color of their skin? This hour of Reveal revisits the three stories about how some temp agencies hire by race and who loses out. And we’ll bring you up to date on what’s happened since they originally aired.

In a collaboration with The Bureau of Investigative Journalism in the United Kingdom and KQED in California, this episode of Reveal tells the stories of children crossing borders alone. You'll hear about the wars they’re fleeing, where they’re trying to go and what happens to them when they get there. We followed migrants who traveled from Afghanistan to Sweden to London, from El Salvador and Mexico to California, and we found that kids seeking safe harbor in Europe and the U.S. often confront years of uncertainty and insecurity when they arrive.
