Review this title!

I don't usually watch documentaries but this was good.

There really isn't any "inappropriate" content. It can sometimes be sad though, like in one part a boy says his dad died because he took drugs. But the movie is very interesting. I think kids will actually learn from it. There are actually very great role models.

A really good choice

None of the topics the website gives for rating the movie really fit. It is a documentary which means little kids will probably get bored, but for the older kids especially the kids in public schools should see this. It takes you into the lives of the kids who are featured in the movie.

AMAZING

Moving and thought-provoking documentary about how we can make a difference in the public schools. However, this movie wont hold back. Shocking content that you or your child never knew would even happen are portrayed in this movie. For example, a teacher dunks a students head in a toilet. Not graphically shown, but orally presented. A must watch for every kid 10 and up.
