Over the last several weeks, TheBlaze’s Will Cain has released his four-part docuseries “Alise vs. the Mayor” chronicling the journey of 10-year-old New York City student Alise Alexander and her mother.

In February, progressive New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio brought down the gauntlet on three charter schools operated by Eva Moskowitz, leaving hundreds of kids without classrooms to return to this fall. Will’s kindergarten-aged son attends one of those three schools, and his four-part digital documentary series looks at the issue of charter schools in New York City through the eyes of a student of Harlem Success Academy and her mother.

On Thursday, the final installment of the riveting series was released. Is there a happy ending for Alise and her classmates?
