THE CARTEL will open in Washington, DC on Friday, April 30th.

Teachers punished for speaking out. Principals fired for trying to do the right thing. Union leaders defending the indefensible. Bureaucrats blocking new charter schools. These are just some of the people we meet in The Cartel. The film also 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. The Cartel shows us our educational system like we’ve never seen it before. Behind every dropout factory, we discover, lurks a powerful, entrenched, and self serving cartel. The Cartel draws an unequivocal bottom line: If we care about our children’s futures, we must insist upon far-reaching and immediate reform. And we must do it now.
