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.

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!

Great movie to watch when you need a lift (and frankly, can't we all?). Story line: A frustrated mother and teacher of a failing school band together to try and make changes for the better, all the while fighting the bureaucracy of the public school system's status quo. Decent drama and acting. May not be an Academy Award movie but definitely worth seeing.

Saw this movie last night....it was great! Shows what is WRONG with our school system. Most of the time, it isn't the teachers, it is the system that is the problem, or just a hand ful of teachers. It's based on a true story, and Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhart both give Oscar worthy performances Makes you cry when you see just how bad it is in most schools across the US.....this is a must see. Also, love the little girl...she reminds me of a yound Drew Barrymore!
