"Won't Back Down" - State of Education in America

Coming to theaters this September is a film called "Won't Back Down" starring Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhall.  We've seen many documentaries hit the screens recently, illuminating audiences to the horrible state that the education system of the United States finds itself in, from Waiting for Superman to American Teacher.  While there have been other films on education like, Freedom Writers, this film seems different since it seems that it will be taking a perspective similar to the documentaries we have recently seen but in a drama instead of a documentary format.  I recommend watching the trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments:


  1. That looks like a great movie! I hadn't heard of it - thanks for sharing! I also 'want to see' The First Grader' that I see on your side bar!

  2. Sharing education stuff is really good to aware knowledge to other. I am student and I always finding education stuff that help in my study. And enhance my knowledge from reading different types of blogs.
