K-12 Education on the Marquee is an excellent post by Walt Gardner on the common errors being made in documentaries about schools.
My only issue with it is that he suggests that parents of English Language Learners might not respond to requests to meet with teachers. I’m not really sure where that comes from, since ELL parents are just as interested in their child’s welfare as any other parent. I’m assuming that he might have meant that some schools might not have the language ability to communicate with monolingual parents. That I can understand. (Walt clarifies what he meant here).
Even with that reservation, I’m adding it to The Best Posts & Articles About The Teacher-Bashing “Waiting For Superman” Movie & Associated Events.
