Councilwoman Cheri Bryant Hamilton (D-5) is offering a unique invitation to parents and those who are interested in the education of children to view an important film which looks at the national debate on Charter Schools.

“I believe it is time for the community to understand the discussion about the Charter School concept,” says Hamilton.

Following the national discussion and critical acclaim of the film “Waiting for Superman”, the film “The Lottery” seeks to outline the opposing sides in the Charter School debate. Hamilton has arranged a special screening of the film at the Catholic Enrichment Center, 3112 West Broadway beginning at 6:00pm on Friday, January 28th.

Refreshments will be served.

“The Lottery” follows four families who have entered their children into a Charter School lottery in hopes of providing a better education. It takes a close look at the concept of the Charter School and talks with politicians and educators.

It centers on the ongoing debate about Charters Schools and public school choice.

This debate is going on all across the nation,” says Hamilton. “Cities and states are wrestling with concerns about parental choice and educational options. I hope we can have an open discussion about various educational choices in Louisville.”

For more information about this special showing of “The Lottery”, contact Councilwoman Hamilton’s office at 574-1105.
