Just a few weeks ago in San Diego, I had the privilege of seeing a documentary tackling the current state of education in America called “The Cartel.”
Due to the events unfolding in Wisconsin, I believe it is very important for people to see this film. Yes–there are many fine teachers trapped in a failing system. Many of the teachers in the Madison school district did not call in sick. The protests in Wisconsin have more to do with a union that is drunk with power than the average teacher trying to do his or her job.
But we can not ignore any longer the fact that teachers unions in this country are out of control. ”The Cartel” shines light on a few failing school districts–and the unions in the system that fight change.
Here is the movie trailer. For more information, go to www.TheCartelMovie.com.
