    The testing mania is a complete disaster and is one cog in the play to privatize the public education system.

    It’s a tragedy the way public education is being hacked to bits and it’s why I’m making a film that tells the truth about the corporate takeover from the teachers, students and parents view.

    We have put together several trailers and if you would like to learn more about us and the project go to http://www.busyboyproductions.com/movies-tv/corporatized-documentary
