Public schools across the country struggle for funding, impacted by
both poverty and politics. For free-market reformers, private
investors and large education corporations, this struggle spells
opportunity.

Education, Inc. examines the free-market and for-profit interests that
have been quietly and systematically privatizing America’s public
education system under the banner of “school choice”. The story is
told through the eyes of parent and filmmaker Brian Malone, as he
travels cross-country in search of the answers and sources behind the
privatizing of American public education.

With striking footage from school protests, raucous school board
meetings and interviews with some of the most well known educators in
the country, Malone zooms out to paint a clear picture of profit and
politics that.s sweeping across the nation, right under our noses.
