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?

If you look at the history of public schools prior to charter schools, you will find a failed institution. Be grateful for the innovation of Charter Schools - some have proven success and are in the top 10 schools in the nation. The movie was excellent!

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.

I loved this movie because it was very truthful and inspiring. Great field trip movie for elementary kids and teachers. I hope this movie inspires both teachers and children.
