Unfortunately, there are schools like the ones portrayed. There are teachers who just want to dope up the kids and keep them still. But--these schools are not typical nor widespread. The film would like us to believe that this is the norm, it is happening in your school system. It is not.

And why do some schools have to operate like a prison with guards and drug dogs and searches? Because the kids are acting like gangbangers and criminals and the parents and community do not give a care about it.

I wonder what the film's suggestions for reform would be? Kick out the hoods, get rid of teacher unions, and give parents vouchers and choice?
