Great Film
22 May 2012 | by gwenterprisesllcSee all my reviews

Everyone who has children, or plan on having any need to see this great film. It makes a great case for Home schooling, and shutting down the Department of Education and giving control back to the parents. As a filmmaker I can see the finished product as a fantastic project. Also the flow of the story keeps your attention, and really makes one think. having endured Parochial Schools in the 50's when teachers Taught, I am thankful for the education I received. I did a spanking or two-but deserved each for sure, got one when I got home as well. I learned not to repeat my actions very quick-Thank God they did not use mind altering drugs back then.
