Concerning "The Boys of Baraka"  video and also "Road to Nowhere", too!


Hey, I had a great time at the recent viewing of that video where the ghetto kids from Baltimore inner-city public schools get sent to Africa where they spend one to two years getting un-ghetto-ized and are taught by white teachers.


This film a direct opposite view of the other education video, "Road to Nowhere" which is about affluent,  mostly white high school students who fret about getting a "B" when they have all "A's".  And one even commits suicide because of her math grade... She got a "B!"  My students are happy to get a "D" which means that they are passing.  This movie was misleading and treated "ALL" high school students as being on the caliber of someone who attends New Trier High School in Winneka, IL.  And this is not everyone.


Both movies deeply disturbed me and I think that there is another side that needs to be shown.  Come to my school and film my students.  That's reality!
