Synopsis

Passed On presents an honest, often gritty story of the classroom experience in failing schools in Philadelphia, PA, a city with violent crime and a high poverty rate. Through stories of her own students, Louise Marr reveals how the current corporate reform movement misunderstands what teachers and students need to increase achievement levels. Louise Marr outlines the real problems in the schools today, which are fundamentally rooted in the poverty and violence students face on a daily basis, and demonstrates how we are losing precious time by following the misguided solutions proposed by education reformers and policy leaders today.
