A Must-see Educational Documentary
“Shock and awe” is the overwhelming response from the citizens who have viewed a powerful, new educational documentary titled, Rise Above the Mark. The documentary was created by Rocky Killion, superintendent of the West Lafayette School Corporation in West Lafayette, Indiana, to alert the general public about what he calls the “corporate takeover” of our nation’s public schools. Since its premier less than a year ago, more than 10,000 people have seen Rise Above the Mark throughout the United States and in several countries, including Belgium, Finland and The Netherlands. Rocky reports that after viewing it many people acknowledge they haven’t been aware of what has been happening to our public schools and ask: What can we help do about it? Narrated by Peter Coyote and featuring Diane Ravitch, Jamie Vollmer and other nationally recognized educational leaders, this documentary is a must-see for anyone who wants to know or let others know how our nation’s education reform movement is impacting our school children. Rise Above the Mark DVDs are available on Amazon.com.
