Another movie promoting "school reform"

 Hope you can read this story in Education Week.  A new movie to be released in September, called "Won't Back Down," is a fictionalized portrayal of the use of parent trigger laws.  The movie is produced by Walden Media, the same production company behind "Waiting for Superman," a film widely used to disparage public education and teachers unions.  "Won't Back Down" promises to be a feel good movie on its surface, but it should definitely be viewed with a critical eye.
