All parents, teacher and those without children should go and see this heart felt movie. Two parents and a teacher to reach out and fix something that is so wrong and they want to make it right for the children. We all need to do this, have faith, trust and HOPE to make thing work for all of us.

It can be seen two ways. One - against the unions, or two - for children. The basic message is fight for childrens future. It's also a good movie that made me reflect on why I do the work I do. A teacher, doctor, accountant, anyone... do you do the work you do for the money or for your passion?

This was a great movie. It showed that how some school districts actually work when they have bad teachers & they just keep them around & just get used to the idea that the children aren't going to learn anything. It also shows what someone can do if they are commited. There was no bad language in it.

is definetly academy award material. Excellent casting, excellent directiing and a plot that hits home for a lot of people. Inspiring and dramatic, it left me in tears. Nominate Maggie Gyllenhaal for Best Actress, nominate Viola Davis for Best Supporting Actress, and the movie for Best Picture. This is a must see but don't take word for it, see it for youselves.

A very good movie. Living in California, a State with a powerful teachers union, and some of the worst test scores in the nation, I could relate to the story line. I could feel the frustration, but could cheer these woman who took on a failing system. The audience clapped at the end and everyone seemed to have great attitudes as they left the theater. Unions had a real purpose and served their members well. Now the greedy Unions are bankrupting States, Counties and Cities, and it seems like there is no recourse on poor performance. People are getting fed up. Unfortunately, the members of these Unions could end up suffering for the greed and inept leadership of their Unions when they get pennies on the dollar instead of the retirement they were counting on.
