The Rock River Patriots will be having a meeting this Friday March 11th at 6:00pm in Jefferson at Kendall Packaging. Kendall Packaging is located at 707 N. Parkway Street on the north side of Jefferson.
At this meeting we will discuss the current important topics and events. We will also watch part of the documentary “The Cartel” and discuss it. Here is part of the description of the film from the creator’s website:
About The Cartel | 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. 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.
Together, these people and their stories offer an unforgettable look at how a widespread national crisis manifests itself in the educational failures and frustrations of individual communities. They also underscore what happens when our schools don’t do their job. “These are real children whose lives are being destroyed,” director Bob Bowdon explains.
Hope to see you all there!
