14. We showed this film here and had a good attendance...

but I have to say that most of the audience in Florida were pretty critical of Rhee and the attempts to "privatize" schools. The legislature here is all GOP, but the citizens have repeatedly supported education as constitutional amendments on class size, support for schools, and public colleges. Honestly, the attacks have driven up union membership and rallied teachers to the street corners.

I think more teachers have seen Waiting for Superman than parents. The battle with Rick Scott is pretty rough, but in the long run parents here don't hate teachers and schools enough to radically go along with all the crazy ideas.
