The Lottery

What really stuck out to me while watching The Lottery was that the parents wanted their children to get better education, but were against charter schools even though 100% of their students pass the standardized test, while the zone schools have only 20% success rate. The movie even brought classroom size which we have been discussing. It said that some classes have 27 kids in them which reduces the amount of time a teacher can spend one-on-one time with.There were some quotes that stuck with me, and one of them was "It's wrong to keep open failed schools".
