I m sure these documentaries must be worth watching and as the most interesting thing is that its one minute duration. Very interesting blog.

Well that's true that there is a lot of education in US where there is a loop hole which needs to be filled up quickly.

One thought bandied about was what if we treated education with as much intensity, investment and passion as we do high school athletics, students might benefit intellectually.

How can I get a copy of this film? I'm a youth pastor and have thought for a while that sports, though important, is overemphasized. Parents will raise all kinds of money to keep a sports program going with seemingly little concern when kids can't read in Middle School. There are also more and more students dropping out of high school to go to "alternative education" where I have subbed and they have easy classes like "television reviewing". Not that we shouldn't think about what we watch, but come on - a class where you just watch tv!! They give a degree for this! I'm looking forward to seeing how India and China reward academics. I wonder what would happen if we rewarded one class for academics more than for athletics? Would they be better off in the end?

This education situation has been obvious to me for years. One had only to look at the students winning Westinghouse Prizes and making top scores on entrance exams. Yes, too much pressure could be put on these but there is no doubt American students spend less time in school than students in many other countries. They are entertained to death. Their social lives are overly busy. The emphasis on school sports and its attendant distractions is phenomenal in many parts of the country. This really must change. Children learn in the cradle from their parents what their family educational values are. Parents have to realize, accept, and act on that knowledge. Then they won't have to wonder what happened when their child reaches an unfocused adulthood. It really is WHAT you know. I am thrilled that this film has been made and cannot wait to get a copy of it. It is way overdue.

I agree with you that there is a tremendous amount of inertia built into our view of the U.S. education system which I do not think can ever "reform" In my view, the only home is to allow choice and competition through various mechanisms such as charter schools, tuition tax credits and vouchers.
How can we schedule a creening in Atlanta?
