    • don’t worry about writing loads of lnsees at once as readers will see that you haven’t put work into them at all.9. length, keep it long, but not too long. make the article long enough to get your point across and get into detail, add more over time

  2. Guggenheim spent a great deal of money to make a movie that sadly portray the charter schools as saviors of the education movement and public schools as the cause of society’s problems. He exploited the desperations of parents and children trying to get in, yet the charter schools are no better or worse, and will counsel out those children with special needs, ELL, behavior problems, or a threat to their stats.

    But, Julie, Brian, Norm, and those from GEM, with a slim budget and on their own time, brilliantly highlighted the deceitful mechanisms that the charter schools use to pit parents against parents, squeeze into overcrowded public schools making impossible for the schools to survive, and the obvious truth behind the millionaires’ tactics to get richer on the backs of our public school children.

    Each statement that Julie, Brian, Leonie, and the parents made in the movie is a testament to what’s happening in our schools. After the movie, Diane spoke and said that this movie should go viral. Exactly! Get the movie, spread the truth, and expose those educrats!
