Another excellent debate on Education.

Rick Hess is one of the better known authors and analysts of the education reform movement. His blog can be found over at EdWeek.

In a recent set of posts , Rick was commenting on all the “Edu-Agitprop” movies coming out. (Just FYI, “agitprop” is a combination of “Agitation Propaganda.”) You can read both this post and this one to read a healthy debate on where the education system should be headed.

Join me Friday night, Meet the Producer/Director of…

The Cartel

Click this link to find out about a great way to spend Friday night. (April 30th)

I’ve previewed “The Cartel,” and it is must see. If you like this site and its take on education, you need to invite one or 2 soccer moms to this movie and post-movie discussion. It is a mind-changer.


The Heartland Institute, For the Good of Illinois, and America’s Future Foundation invite you to the Chicago premier of “The Cartel.” Click here for a downloadable poster.

This compelling documentary highlights the problems and promise involved in transforming America’s schools … and exposes the cartel blocking that transformation at every turn.

To highlight the importance of this movie, your hosts will present Bob Bowdon, producer of “The Cartel.” Immediately following the movie’s showing, we’ll hold a question-and-answer session in the theater, featuring Bowden; Bruno Behrend, director of the Center for School Reform at The Heartland Institute; and Adam Andrzejewski, founder of For the Good of Illinois.
