Film Images of Private Schools.
Resnick, David
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v34 n1 p73-91 Apr 2000
Examines public debate over private education in the context of the Hollywood dramatic feature film. Analyses four recent films that all portray private schools negatively. Film representation of public schools is more optimistic. Asserts that the films ignore or misrepresent three strengths of private education: effective leadership, small school size, and parent involvement. (Contains 22 references.) (VWC)
