I love me some propaganda
What would happen if you took all the money being given to the charter schools, included money now going to charter school CEO's bonuses that does not help education kids at all, and gave it all to the public schools? You can start with class sizes being half what they are, teachers being able to get to more kids because they aren't trying to manage 40 kids per class, more after-school programs keeping kids off the streets and giving them help with their homework, more resources like computers and new text books to better teach the kids with - it's pretty much endless.
This film is nothing more than a piece of propaganda that I guarantee you is paid for in the end by some of the money given to charter schools, money that could have been better spent on actual kids rather than attempting to convince people that cutting public schools' budgets in half has nothing to do with their lack of effectiveness, and that unions don't care about kids.
