The lottery ( Visual )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focuses on the charter school experience for African American families. In a country where 58% of African American 4th graders are functionally illiterate, The Lottery uncovers the failures of the traditional public school system and reveals that hundreds of thousands of parents attempt to flee the system every year. Follows four of these families from Harlem and the Bronx who have entered their children in a charter school lottery to attend the Harlem Success Academy, a public charter school founded by Eva Moskowitz, a former New York City councilwoman. Out of thousands of hopefuls, only a small minority will win the chance of a better future. Uncovers a ferocious debate surrounding the education reform movement. Interviews with politicians and educators explain not only the crisis in public education, but also why it is fixable. A call to action to avert a catastrophe in the education of American children, The Lottery makes the case that any child can succeed

"As the most persuasive and pervasive force of communication in our culture, media is educating yet another generation that a woman's primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality--and not in her capacity to lead, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective"--Container

"The Newark History Society aims to expand knowledge of Newark's past so that we may better understand the present. Founded by Puritans in 1666, Newark has a rich and textured history as one of America's great cities. Newark's history is worth studying and knowing not only for its intrinsic interest, but for insights into the social and intellectual forces that have shaped the American experience, including industrial innovation, political controversy, and the immigrant experience, as well as urban development, decay and birth. Founded in 2002, the Newark History Society organizes regular public programs and encourages new research. Most of our events are held at the New Jersey Historical Society or the Newark Public Library, and are free and open to the public. Events are videotaped, courtesy of the Newark Municipal Clerk's office, and later shown over New Jersey Television Channel 78."--Container
