The Lottery DVD
Desperate to flee the failing public schools of their low-income neighborhoods, every year, thousands of parents enter their children into charter-school lotteries-but only a few win slots. This powerful documentary follows four families from Harlem and the Bronx as they struggle to get their preschoolers into charter school, and explores why so many students are deprived of the education they deserve. 80 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English stereo.
