Join us for one of our Louisville Screenings of Education, Inc.
The Louisville chapter of Save Our Schools Kentucky has released their schedule of free screenings of the film Education, Inc. at 13 different branches of the Louisville Free Public Library. The screenings will inform participants how potential charter school legislation (based on 25 years of lessons learned from 44 other states) could impact our public school system, and how to contact your legislators to advocate for any changes. The event lasts approximately 2 hours and will provide an opportunity to ask questions at the end.
Education, Inc. explores the hidden corporate and political interests attempting to take over American public education across the country. As public schools nationwide struggle for funding, complicated by the impact of poverty and politics, corporate reformers see opportunity. Watch the trailer here:
Education, Inc. was produced by documentary filmmakers and public school parents Brian and Cindy Malone. The Malones made the film to inform and engage local communities across the country. They have made the film available for house parties and community screenings by simply purchasing a DVD. Their hope is that students, parents, citizens and public school advocacy groups will use the film to help start an important conversation about the role and value of public education in America.
Local organizers are encouraged to drop a pin on the national Education, Inc. map once they schedule a screening to show how many places the film will be screened across the country.
