I never would have imagined the same guy who teamed up with Al Gore for "An Inconvenient Truth" would come out with a documentary that makes the teacher unions (and by extension the Dem party to which they've contributed $55 million over the last few decades) look bad. That hideous NEA spokeswoman really comes off as out of touch and clueless, especially when the documentary highlights the ugly reality of tenure and inability (due to union contracts) for movers and shakers to come in and provide real change and progress (i.e. Michelle Rhee in Washington, DC, who dared to tackle that thorny issue of "tenure"). The conditions that led to the creation of the unions were certainly less than satisfactory, but today these organizations are impending progress and holding the taxpayer hostage.

^^ So it's safe to say they won't be showing this in many classrooms?

Heck no...I'm glad Paramount decided to send these out to Redbox. It's an eye-opener that is timely as the situation in Wisconsin unfolds.

I just watched The Lottery on netflix and it sounds pretty similar.
