The "superman" doc is a slick,insidious piece that joins the right wing and Obama administration attacks on teachers and their unions. It understates or avoids the facts that the charter schools are not, as a group, outperforming public schools in low income areas, and that several of the most publicized ones are very expensive operations that survive on massive corporate donations to give an aura of overwhelming success when at best the achievements are minor or inconsistent. The ability of charter schools to often select their students, and easily expel them give them an advantage over public schools which can do neither.
Most older experienced teachers love their job. Why else would they remain in a modest salary position in overcrowded, under resourced schools that have to address survival as well as educational needs of their pupils. Teachers are the ones who know the problems and face them daily. We need their input. Finally someone is giving them a voice.

It was a complete pleasure to be part of this project. As a teacher I often feel as though everyone is making decisions, but nobody is asking those of us on the front lines or opinions. This movie is the voice of educators and it was nice to finally be asked.

Salutations, Robert this is Jesse Turner from Connecticut. I am the guy that walked 400 miles in 40 days protesting NCLB reform policies. I am walking again this year, but it looks like I won't walking alone this time. A group of parents, teachers, students, and community activists are hold a SOS Teach-in/March at the American University this July 28-31. We love the "teach Channel", and we deeply respect the truth that you and Yvonne are documenting.
We need you to come preview your movie in Connecticut.
Like "Public Enenmy" said the revolution won't be televised, or seen on MTV, or CNN.
My thinking is you might catch it on the Teach Chanel.
Thank you for giving voice to the truth,
Jesse Turner
