The purpose of Every Child Left Behind isn’t just to create a documentary that raises awareness about the state of public education in America, but to start a conversation that will lead to creative, forward-thinking solutions. By speaking with students, teachers, parents, administrators, educational experts and policy makers, and gathering a wide variety of viewpoints, we aim to present a comprehensive picture of America’s educational system that takes a critical look at our educational policies and highlights the need to make improving public education a national priority.
If you would like to help our cause, donate or join the conversation.
