Host: Heritage Foundation. For years we’ve read the stories: Results of national and international educational aptitude tests show that the average American student is unable to compete academically. In short, public education is failing. Flunked highlights the common threads of successful education: strong leadership, high standards, excellent teachers, and solid curricula. By focusing on schools that are successfully applying these principles, Flunked sends a message loud and clear: Parents, students, principals, and teachers do not have to settle for mediocrity in their own schools! Flunked just won Best Educational Documentary at the Bayou City Inspirational Film Festival in Houston. Executive Producer Steven Maggi and Director Corey Burres will be in attendance.
