“Listen: The Movie” challenging the culture of standardized testing


On TV, we have Bill Gates, Michelle Rhee, Arne Duncan and “Waiting for ‘Superman’” talking about failing schools, low standards, and China, but rarely do they ever talk about students.

Who is going to tell the story of public education? Is it going to be the corporate-education reformers who haven’t spent a day teaching, or is it going to be the students, teachers, and parents who live the realities of these policies every day in the classroom?

LISTEN is a documentary, created by a student, that attempts to tell those stories from the perspective of people most directly affected by education policy–the students.

Watch and listen.
