    wow that was actually quite frightning to watch.Is this country too late to fix this??USA is now #48 in education in the world.Finnland #1.The education minister of Finnland was invited to come and recommand procedures.His reply was the USA has too much poverty.!!Interesting as well.
    I think the main problem is too much sex!!!People are not being responsible and the parents or parent( I was my self a single parent of 2) are irresponsible. It costs a lot to have one child and most poor people have 6 and up.Why!!!??Maybe you should portray the parents and expose them for being irresponsible citizens .
    I was very impressed with the buildings in the film.My grand kids go to a school in Manmhattan Beach,Ca the school building is from 1953!!!Nothing like the kids you filmed have, sad they do not appreciate it.Also the teachers of today do not give a good example is dress code ,no respect can come from kids when teachers dress poorly like the students do.This then results in kids dressing even worse.Could they get a job when they dress like that,NO. Bad examples from parents and teachers ,no wonder these kids are messed up,not their fault really
    Yes do do a report on these negligent parents,white ,black,brown,yellow and red. Kids are being neglected here almost worse than in the third world.
    Thanks for being a well dressed reporter ,you get my respect for that and the reports. Bravo
