New Documentary on NCLB

This is an email from Judy Rabin on a very important event:

I attended the premiere of Lerone Wilson's documentary, No Child
Left Behind
,
at the Pioneer Theater in New York on Sunday. It is
artistically well-done and very powerful in reflecting the realities

and issues of NCLB -- a MUST SEE.


Here's the link to the web site if you would like to purchase the DVD:

We need to support this young NYU film student and this VERY
IMPORTANT
project by not only purchasing the DVD, but by
making sure that it is aired and
seen in as many venues and by as
many people as possible -- local theaters,
universities and PBS stations.

The idea for the film originated while he was
working in a NYC
elementary schoolas a teacher's assistant and was exposed to the
harsh realities of NCLB. One of theteachers said, "Lerone, you have to
do
something about this!" and he did.

You will not be disappointed.
