Awards season has become an important aspect of the Hampton's International Film Festival here on Long Island. The film stoked talk about the education system in this country with attendees comparing notes on their own schooling. At lunch yesterday at The Maidstone, Davis Guggenheim (above and center below) chats with Bob Berney (below left) and Mark Urman (below right). Guggenheim's "Waiting for Superman" screened yesterday at the fest and the film will get a big boost this week at an unannounced event. But, yesterday Guggenheim asked his lunch partners not to spill the beans on that... Stay tuned.

    Would you blame a police man that works in a high crime area? No? Why not? There are many other FACTORS!

    Do you think a POLICE OFFICER working in Oakland, Compton, Watts, or East L.A. has the SAME LEVEL of STRESS and PRESSURE, as cop in Beverly Hills?

    Do you think WALKING along RODEO DRIVE is EQUAL to WALKING ALONG 54TH AND CRENSHAW?

    Michelle Rhee claims to care about education, but the "bad teachers" she fired were mostly fully-credentialled, older, black women who had a vested interest in the community.

    She replaced them with mostly white, inexperienced young people that didn't have teaching credentials and were just PASSING THROUGH the "ghetto".

    According to an article published by the Washington Post, TEST SCORES went DOWN EVEN LOWER!

    Michelle Rhee only taught for 3 years and DOES NOT have a teaching credential. As Chancellor, she made over a quarter of a million dollars per year!
