Critic Reviews for The Lottery
You look at all these beautiful kids, with all the potential in the world, and every expectation for a great life, and you know that at most one-sixth of them will come out of the room with a fighting chance. That shouldn't be.
The film takes an effective, two-pronged approach to tell its enlightening tale.
Though infinitely classier -- and easier on the eyes -- than Cartel, the recent documentary exploring public education, this latest charter-school commercial is no less one-sided.
Charter schools, good or bad? That's the question raised by director Madeleine Sackler's timely but standard documentary The Lottery.
Audience Reviews for The Lottery
The commentary by Karl Willingham (56 minute marker) broke my heart. "No Child Left Behind," seems to be leaving countless numbers behind. So very sad.
Makes me grateful to live in Anchorage with its very progressive charter school system. I know that there are groups that oppose charter schools but I was stunned to witness how furiously some will defend the status quo.
Plain and simple...children deserve a quality education no matter their income level, race, ethnicity, family background, location of their home, etc. How are we suppose to grow a flourishing future for our families, our communities, and our country without educating our children?
