Davis Guggenheim. More like this. Storyline Edit. As he follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, Guggenheim undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying "drop-out factories" and "academic sinkholes," methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems.

Instead, the solutions are empty rhetoric, meaningless business jargon and ridiculous psycho-babble. So if you want a more comprehensive and serious analysis of the why schools are failing you should watch The Wire season 4. Sad, isn't it? It's worth listening to the closing song.
