Film (The War on Kids) Probes Public Education in America

The award-winning feature documentary, THE WAR ON KIDS, launches a nationwide grassroots screening tour that will bring the debate about public education to dozens of campuses and communities nationwide.

In 95 minutes, THE WAR ON KIDS exposes the many ways the public school system has failed children and our future by robbing students of all freedoms due largely to irrational fears.  Children are subjected to endure prison-like security, arbitrary punishments, and pharmacological abuse through the forced prescription of dangerous drugs.  Even with these measures, schools not only fail to educate students, but the drive to teach has become secondary to the need to control children.  Not only do school fall short of their mission to educate, but they erode the country’s democratic foundation and often resemble prisons.

School children are interviewed as are high school teachers and administrators, and prison security guards, plus renowned educators and authors including:

Henry Giroux:  Author of Stealing Innocence Corporate Culture's War on Children
Mike A. Males:  Sociologist, author of Scapegoat Generation
John Gatto: New York City and New York State Teacher of the Year
Judith Browne:  Associate Director of the Advancement Project
Dan Losen:  The Civil Liberties Project, Harvard University
