As I mentioned months ago, I thought “The Lottery,” a film about families trying to get into Eva Moskowitz’s charter schools, was heartbreaking but manipulative and not very illuminating. If you’re in D.C., you can judge for yourself. The National Alliance of Public Charter Schools is hosting a free screening on Friday evening—popcorn and soda gratis. Register here. If you see it, come back here and share your impressions in the comments.
Elsewhere on the edufilm festival circuit, I am going to see “Waiting for Superman” today. I’ll let you know what I think.
