We Are The People We've Been Waiting For (2009) (trailer)

This film from the UK looks at several children who do not thrive in conventional schooling for a variety of reasons, and asks how we can bring the best out in each child instead of measuring them against a one-size-fits-all standard and labeling them as failures.

"This landmark documentary explores the extent to which young people around the world are being failed by an education system created at the time of the Industrial Revolution. A provocative and relevant exploration of the most important issue of our time, We Are The People We've Been Waiting For confronts our expectations of what education systems ought to be achieving for our children. - Caroline Rowland
