    Cevin Soling's lively documentary lays out in hair-raising detail the authoritarian underpinnings of America's child-centered culture.

    A startling wake-up call about appalling conditions prevailing in American schools, The War on Kids contradicts popular wisdom.
  3. Offering neither balance nor solutions (a segment on the overuse of medications like Ritalin is especially powerful, but especially in need of counterargument), The War on Kids questions what kind of citizens we are producing.

    It’s a hysterical doc that’s a war on rational, levelheaded analysis.
