Waiting for Superman is a documentary that casts public education as full of ‘drop out’ factories and ‘academic sinkholes’.
Rise Above the Mark explores the negative impact of school reform on public education.
Standardized is another documentary. This one takes on the testing mania that supports school reform. It will be shown in Gainesville, Florida. The poster was just sent to me. The failure of the Florida Standards Assessment online test administration yesterday underscores the message in the film.
If you see all three films, you will cover the arguments on both sides.
It would be good to have a fourth film that documents all the good things that happen in our schools.
