The Cartel, a documentary that provides an expose of our educational system and a look at some reformers who are trying to change things, is now available for purchase on DVD, just in time for Christmas.

The film introduces us to teens who can’t read, parents desperate for change, and teachers struggling to launch stable alternative schools for inner city kids who want to learn. We witness the tears of a little girl denied a coveted charter school spot, and we share the triumph of a Camden homeschool’s first graduating class.

For more on this film, please see Mark Bauerlein’s review, “The Cartel” in New Jersey.
