Movies: Two Parent Trigger Flicks In The Works For 2012
There are not one but two different movies about the California parent trigger coming out sometime in the not too distant future.
One is a documentary called We The Parents, the other is a dramatized version of the story now called Learning To Fly scheduled to come out in the fall starring Maggie gyllanhaal, Viola Davis, Holly Hunter and Rosie Perez. Yes, it's being produced by Walden Films, who put out Waiting For Superman (and the Chronicles of Narnia).
What I find most interesting about the parent trigger idea is that educators, self-appointed parent advocates, and -- yes -- reform types (with the notable exception of Michelle Rhee) all seem not to like it very much.
