College Movie Review’s Danielle Bartz has posted a great review of “World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements.”

“Sadly, in today’s society, fewer educators than necessary really touch the lives of children. Perhaps the most underpaid and underappreciated profession in the United States is undoubtedly one of the most important. I had a teacher named Mr. Bridges in the fifth grade, and I remember so many specific lessons and examples from his class now, almost fourteen years later that I only wish every student could have a teacher and an experience like Mr. B, even just once in their education. In World Peace and Other 4th Grade Achievements, we have both the privilege and pleasure of watching Mr. Hunter, who studied an experimental education program in college, reach out and shape the hearts and minds of his forth grade students. He brilliantly teaches them to work together, think critically and creatively, evaluate consequences, and take on challenges much larger than any—including themselves—would think possible.”
