Looks like a good film, finally one that does not bash teachers!

Tonight the director/producer of “Brooklyn Castle”–Katie Dellamaggiore–will be a guest on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central. One of the stars of the film, Pobo Efekoro will join her.
The documentary is about an amazing middle-school chess team in an inner-city school in Brooklyn that wins one title after another in national championships.
If “Waiting for Superman” and “Won’t Back Down” left a bad taste, see this film. It will remind you of how wonderful our students, our teachers, and our public schools can be.
