Nobody Told Me follows the story of one woman, Lila Jeff, who turned around a failing school on Chicago’s west side: moving from 10% to 70% college graduation in 6 years.

In 1997 less than 10% of Manley Career Academy's graduating class went to college. In 2003 the struggling high school on Chicago's poverty-scarred west side sent over 70% of its graduating seniors to colleges and universities around the country. Lila's Hope is the story of the women who made this success a reality, Lila Leff.
