This daring , thought provoking and very timely documentary reveals the truth about our education system, why in most cases, it is failing both young people and our society.
What’s even more alarming about the current education system, is that it leaves millions of students behind, never realizing their true potential.

This film exposes the percolating emotions and gives kids and teachers hope for a better future.. Solutions from the inside out.

We can change it!
Kids are our future!

  Read what frustrated teachers, students
  and parents are saying:
(We acknowledge the hard work and the dedication of many educators and this effort is our way of helping them build the lives of students.)
"Sometimes I go inside classrooms to do some measurement while the class is in session. I noticed most of the times that the students do not  pay attention to the teacher because of obsolete methods of teaching used
(from last century). They need new computerized teaching system to  attract the students' attention (Education Reform)." Philip P.-School Contractor
 
"Dear fiend: Please help us. We need money from you. I need your help to buy new books for our library." Student Westside school.
"My school has no cafeteria, no athletic compound and no air-conditioning, these are just the major concerns."- F.S Teacher- inner city school.
"My teachers don't care about my education, all they care about is their pay check!" - Student inner city school.
"I have to spend my own money to buy pencils for the kids." - Volunteer-Westside school
"Somebody is working hard to keep kids out of Special Ed and not the other way around. It truly diminishes the good of those who are in the trenches actually helping  the kids. WHY, WHY, WHY?" -
A mother from Ca.
"I have been waiting to find a way to let parents know the tricks of schools in getting out of helping children in the Special Ed process, which is not even having the child tested to start with! They get out of all of it from the beginning and the parent has no clue what the school did. My child was one of them." - A mother from Georgia.
