Tuesday, December 10 – We The Parents
We The Parents is a feature documentary that follows a group of courageous parents in Compton, California, who lead the first ever effort to take over a failing school under the state of California’s “parent trigger” law. While the heart of the story is the parents struggle in Compton, the film also explores the history of the “parent trigger” law and the spread of the movement across the country. We The Parents is an inspiring and uncertain look at whether parents, the largest stakeholder group in the education system, can organize to create immediate and effective change.
