Anyone see this? If so how can you see the teacher's union as anything but the status quo to protect adults. Those poor kids possibly abandoned to a life failure.

My kid goes to a Montessori school and the school administrator asked us all to watch this as a way to help us to understand how the expense of Montessori education will better prepare our children then public education. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. How is it?

It is a real grabber, you see parents who want their kids to succeed, you see kids who know they need an education, but they are trapped in a failing school system. You feel so sorry for these kids. But the teachers union will not allow anything to be done to these failing teachers. The NEA/NFT will use their power to get rid of anyone who tries to improve on the system. When you see these motivated kids not get a lottery number to get into a high performance charter school, it is like seeing them get a death sentence. No wonder the US is a failing society. BTW Because of what I saw in the Ann Arbor, MI school system, it matched this movie in the low-income section where I lived, I put my son into the Catholic school system. 99% of his classmate went on to college.
