Two Chicago-area sports journalists gathered the tweets directed at them and asked men to read them to their faces. The result went viral.
The new film “Won’t Back Down” stars Maggie Gyllenhaal as a single mom who, frustrated by her daughter’s education, leads a movement to take over the school.
The film is fiction, but “trigger laws,” which enable parents to petition to take over failing schools, are becoming a national trend and laws are on the books in seven states.
Education advocacy was also in the 2010 documentary “Waiting for Superman” and it’s not a coincidence: Both films were produced by Walden Media.
