To be fair to the teachers, they mainly showed us movies at the end of the school year when they were rightfully exhausted. However, some movies we watched after finishing different books to end a unit, and some were shown because of their historical merit. I’m not here to bash the teachers who showed us these movies, but rather to bash the public education system into over working teachers that they feel the need to show movies in the first place. In addition, I’m here to show the bias in the public school system that puts white stright cis male centric stories above all else.
