An upcoming documentary is looking to pull back the curtain on hidden school agendas.
Is there a hidden agenda when it comes to America’s public schools? Are teachers’ unions so powerful that parents and the brave teachers who refuse to toe the line are pushed into silence? The whole point behind the upcoming documentary, Whose Children Are They? is to answer those school agenda questions by pulling back the ugly curtain that public schools have been hiding behind.
You can see the trailer for Whose Children Are They? below.
Not much is known about the documentary, which will play for one night in movie theaters on March 14, 2022. What is known is that the film will be taking an unflinching look at where the public-school systems are at today and what, if any, agenda they might have. According to the documentary’s synopsis, “This film will be the starting point for a full cultural conversation about the need to return to the original intent of education, not indoctrination.”
The documentary has a running time of 2 hours and 15 minutes, so it appears there will be a lot to unpack here. The film promises to inform “parents, teachers, grandparents, and concerned citizens, to partner together for the innocence and well-being of our children.” Education stakeholders will also receive an education on how teachers’ unions have become a corrupting influence and how important it is for the future of our children to remove these unions from school districts across the country.
Whose Children Are They? looks to also help parents realize they have a voice and a large one. It’s a goal of the film to show parents how to stand against this school agenda with good teachers and voice their opinions without fear of union retribution. The documentary also hopes to give teachers the power to exit the unions on a mass scale.
The documentary’s trailer immediately sets the tone of what you will see. After some quick foreshadowing, a lady bluntly says, “Public education has gone off the rails.” Virginia Walden-Ford, author and organizer for D.C. Parents for School Choice then appears and breaks down what may be part of the school agenda saying, “Now, it’s about power and money and politics and somehow the kids are getting lost in all of that.”
Along with Walden-Ford, there are a number of important people in the cast who have bravely stepped forward to tell their stories of public school agendas. One of those seen is award-winning journalist Alex Newman. He is the executive director of the non-profit Public School Exit and he lives that life with his wife as they homeschool their five children.
Also offering her opinion on public school agendas is Dr. Carol Swain, whose credentials are impressive. Dr. Swain is an award-winning political scientist and holds five degrees that include a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an M.S.L. from Yale. She has also penned numerous books.
Rebecca Friedrichs, a 28-year public school teacher, and President and Founder of Parents United America, Deborah Flora, are lending their voice to the documentary detailing school agendas. Also included is Andrew Pollack, a father whose life was destroyed in 2018 when his daughter Meadow was murdered in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.
The timing behind the release of the documentary couldn’t be better for those advocating school choice. Momentum is gaining across the nation as Republicans are firmly backing parents. This documentary will only fuel that fire even more.
