The work the parents did in this film is admirable, which is why I gave this documentary three stars, but this doc isn't truthful. I read up on the real story through LA Times articles and the movie made it seem like the parents won, but they didn't. The school never became chartered, and they still perform well below set standards. Kudos to what the parents did, but go in knowing this doc isn't telling the whole truth.
