Hi Norm,I hope this note finds you well.I'm reaching out to my NY and NJ contacts to let them know about this film.
Announcement:KILLING ED, a new documentary about the Gulen charter school situation -- and what may very well be the worst case scenario of ed reform / school privatization abuse -- will be premiering in NYC starting on Friday, March 25th. I appear in it as well as Diane Ravitch, Noel Hammatt, and others.
If you live in the area, I hope you will be able to attend and/or spread the word.
The film will run from March 25-31 at Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street). See http://www.cinemavillage.com/

Filmmaker Mark Hall worked on this project for over four years and I believe he has presented a very balanced look into what is going on. My sense is that even people who think they are aware of the situation will be somewhat shocked.
If you can make it to the 7PM show on the 25th, we can say hi to each other there!Best,
Mark will be there Friday night, along with Sharon Higgins, an Oakland, California, parent who has written extensively about charter school scandals (she has a website called “charterschoolscandals”), especially the Gulen charter schools. I will be in the audience.
Hall is touring the country with his film. Check the schedule to see if he is coming to your city or state. If not, contact him to arrange a showing. @KillingEdFilm
