    If you have NetFlix, I highly recommend watching it. I just finished seeing it. It's about the public school system, and very eye-opening.

    Quote:I changed the subject line to reflect the subject of the documentary. It's about the public school system, some people trying to make changes for the better, some personal references with parents trying to get their kids into a better school through a lottery, etc.

    Hi, KristyHall!

    If you like that documentary or are interested in the problems with our school system, you should read "The Shame of the Nation" by Kozol. Its an eye opener.
