hi

a few months ago, I saw a trailer about a movie that was making a case against schooling in the US. Thr trailer reminded me of the movie "the buisiness of being born" or at least, it seemed made the same way. It is denonciating compulsory schooling. I cannot seem to find this trailer again, as I cannot remember the name of that documentary. Can somebody help me out?

thx

Speaking of movies, there is also "Waiting for Superman"--also about the public schools. Even though it isn't "pull your child out now", I have heard that many public school officials think it is biased against the school system. I want to see both.

Thanks for posting these. I watched the trailers for both "Race To Nowhere" and "Waiting for Superman". They both look interesting, but I think my experience as a parent in this area would have to be more along "Race to Nowhere".
