The Cartel Screening Coming to Seneca Falls
As you know, our state and country are faced with a failing public educational system.
In Governor Cuomos State of the State Address, he declared that New York State ranks first in spending per student and yet ranks thirty-fourth overall in results.
It is not much better on a national level. American 15-year-olds rank 35th out of 57 countries in math and literacy, behind almost all industrialized nations. Yet the U.S. was the biggest spender at 7.6 percent of GDP, or $1.1 trillion in 2007.
Obviously, we are failing our children in giving them the means to excel in the new global economy. And throwing money at the problem is not the answer.
On Thursday, March 10th, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. at Seneca Falls Library, 47 Cayuga Street, Seneca Falls, NY, there will be a public screening of The Cartel, a documentary that exposes the waste and problems in the public school system. VIEW the movie trailer!

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 kids who want to learn.
This is an extraordinary opportunity to help raise awareness of our failing public education system and build support for school choice. This event is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
Be a part of the revolution to restore Americas exceptionalism!
The Education Revolution is not a partisan issue. Its an American issue and our future depends on it!
