The content of the film illustrates quite well just how ugly the American public education system has become. Current administrative policies operating in public schools are grossly dysfunctional. Zero tolerance policy, watchdog cameras, metal detectors, and psychiatric drug therapy are discussed at length and seen for the abominations that they are.Well sourced statistical data is provided that demonstrates how these things are completely ineffective.
Though being argued as coming from a pure intention, these devices have quite obviously done little else but disenfranchise our nation’s youth of their liberties and discouraged them from becoming independent learners. A society’s methods for educating its children speaks volumes about the future of our nation. An analysis of the inner workings of our education system reveals great insights concerning the present state of psychological and sociocultural health enjoyed by our nation’s peoples.
The future of our nation and indeed the world is equivalent to the lives and experiences of each successive generation of beings. After viewing this movie, it has become quite clear that the course we are on is long overdue for a change and that society at large is on a clear-cut course of self-destruction.
