"Education is Not a Business"

From the "Education is Not a Business" movie website:
The real story of public education is not being told. "Education is Not a Business" will expose the current school "reform" movement as an assault on public education by unregulated capitalism. The real problems in education (such as the achievement gap) are NOT due to teachers, public school systems, the unions or a lack of testing. The real problems facing education are caused by the profound wealth gap, increased child poverty and entrenched racism. Public schools and teachers are being scapegoated for a larger societal problem that we are not willing to resolve. "Education is Not a Business" featuring Diane Ravitch (author of the best-selling "The Death and Life of the Great American School System) will tell the true story.


Directed by Markie Hancock.

Release date TBD.
