re: Started watching The Wire on ondemand! (Posted on 11/9/12 at 1:51 am to USMC Gators)
it completely exposed the public school system's flaws and set backs. It showed how these kids start out as good kids (ie Michael, the kid with a foster mom), and can get lost in the system then turn to crime. It also showed how lost the Corner Kids were, and how they set back the entire class. It showed how these kids are taught tests when they could be actually learning if able to be provided a different curriculum. IMO the school stuff was absolutely brilliant.
