The plush, private MPAA screening theater is one block north of the White House. On January 29th, we had a Who's Who of influential Department of Education officials, political advisers and national media reporters attend a private screening of Two Million Minutes.
Governor Roy Romer, Chairman of ED in 08, opened the screening with a passionate speech highlighting education as the most significant strategic issue America faces in this century. Governor Romer went on to recognize Bob Compton, Executive Producer of the film Two Million Minutes and to characterize the documentary as putting a human face on the discouraging statistics of how American students fare in the Global Education race.
A robust and thought-provoking one hour question and answer session followed the screening of the film as ED in 08 Executive Director Marc Lampkin joined Bob Compton in fielding a wide array of penetrating and challenging questions.
Two Million Minutes Producer/Writer Adam Raney and Holly Zardus from ED in 08 were also on hand to answer questions.
