Two Million Minutes

There's a new documentary out, Two Million Minutes that takes a comparative look at the education systems in the U.S., India, and China. The filmmaker has a definite point of view with which you may not agree, but the film does provide food for thought. The title of the film refers to the roughly two million minutes the average student spends in high school. The documentary follows six students, two each from the U.S., India, and China and chronicles their activities. It's short -- about one hour -- and I've got a copy if anyone would like to take a look. Here's the trailer:
