Viola Davis seems to receive criticism for a lot of the movies she’s a part of. In her latest movie, “Won’t Back Down,”Davis plays a parent concerned about the education her child is receiving so she takes a passionate stance on reforming public schools. Sounds like an inspirational, feel-good time if you ask me. But ask certain educators and you get the opposite reaction.
As reported on Atlanta Black Star, the Sunday night premiere in Hollywood brought out several protesters along the red carpet with loud chants and signs the read,“Won’t Back Down get out of town.” The protesters are against the portrayal of teacher’s unions in the film. They want corporations to invest in public schools instead of charter schools. According to these protesters, charter schools are just not the answer to flailing educational systems across the United States.
