An exceptionally and brutally honest exposé of the realities of the relationship between education of blacks and the incarceration rate. All school districts, not just in inner-urban/urban areas should watch this episode.

There are many dedicated teachers who care for, respect their students and their profession. Persons who earn the right daily to call themselves teachers. Individuals who are articulate, intelligent, compassionate and innovative. Persons who put their skills and heart into working very hard to teach and improve the lives of their students. Here are some of the major reasons for student failure. Ineffective poorly skilled illiterate teachers, racist eurocentric curriculae focused school systems, and agendas. Many school systems are not interested in the students specifically students of color. Racist school systems and racist illiterate teachers are not interested in creativity and innovative ideas and methodology. Nor are they interested in Nevermind that much of the curriculae and procedures are boring students to death and date back to the 1950's. These systems are death and enemies of talented and dedicated individuals both teachers and students. The system brands these persons whether teachers or students trouble makers. There is also the parent component. Parents MUST become proactive in the teaching of their children. They MUST become involved in planning curriculum, who teachers their children, school leadership (boards and principals.) Parents Must find means of supplementing studies. A vast majority of students graduating from college are inarticulate. They're trained robots! Persons who only know what they've been taught. Persons who are ignorant of other cultures and ideologies. These are the persons teaching students. This ignorance and lack of compassion crosses all ethnicities and cultures. For many, it's solely about the paycheck and individual career mobility. Working and being busy is no reason for not having books in ones home, giving time to ones children.

The problem is it is difficult to change the behavior of young men after a certain age. When the child is young - under the age of 8 or 9 - you may still catch/fix/stop that mindframe that leans them toward not finding value in education being the path to becoming upstanding citizen. If not, its re-inforced by the media, by no discipline, by the lack of respect for education and school, by the idea that if they don't rap or play pro sports the only choice is some level of crime. By the time the kid is a teen, they feel they can 'do whatever they want' and don't respect authority from parents to police. This sort of thing can be avoided, but you have to catch them when they are young.

This film should be shown at all schools across the country, during back to school night. Jerone represents what routinely happens on numerous levels in neighborhoods designated as hot spots and those considered "safe." Great job on this film.
