The Cartel

Time Out says

1 out of 5 stars

After decades of endless policy debates, you’d think fixing America’s schools would be a complex endeavor. But apparently not—at least according to this tunnel-vision editorial. News footage, Internet clippings and interviews with like-minded pundits are all melded together in order to map out corruption in New Jersey’s public education system, before the whole shebang arrives at a startlingly simple solution: charter schools. Right! Veteran TV anchor Bob Bowdon’s feature debut has all the intricate nuance of an evening newscast; its analysis is heavy on diagnosis but simplistic when it comes to the cure, as well as woefully ignorant of racial and fiscal complications.—S.
