This was an excellent documentary. The narrator/main guy's passion for these kids was inspirational.

no, it's about the american public school system in underperforming states.

Very nicely done documentary. Eye-opening and frustrating. Also depressing for the most part. Sure it gives a glimmer of hope on how we can tackle the education problem, but the fact that this solution applies to so few kids right now is disheartening.

I also liked how the movie didn't really pick any sides politically. It basically said that the whole system is effed, and they're probably right.
