"bham2013" This is the documentary Waiting for Superman wanted to be; this excellent look at what families in too many communities must navigate to get their kids access to at quality public education will break your heart.

This could have had full stars if I had actually been able to finish watching it: the copy from the library had a massive gouge in it, so it just....stopped.

I wish people would take better care of library materials, or at least fess up when accidents happen.

This video does a good job of presenting the case for Charter Schools. It is not a balanced portrayal of the education system, its failures or its successes. Missing is a look at why some public schools within the same board are successful, while others are a complete failure. Some fairness is regained when all opinions are aired on charter schools, but that is the only place. This video is also against organized labour and states unionization is the reason that the schools in these districts fail as a result of an inability to get rid of poor performers. Once again, not all schools within the public school system are doing as poorly as those mentioned here.
