There are three movies, around American education that should make things very interesting. While there have been many books written about the "one size fits all" factory model that I see as outdated, I am personally hoping that the movies get people to think more about our lack of innovation and systemic problems going on in schools.
To be clear, I don't blame teachers, but believe they should be some of the loudest advocates for change. I realize that I am young and still have much to learn, but one of my goals and passions in life is to see schools be better places for kids and teachers (as well as others)... more motivating, more engaging, more hopeful environments.
I embedded some of the trailers for these movies which all should be out this summer. I will try to follow up with thoughts later, but would also love to hear your reactions... along with any other documentaries that may be coming out around education.
