All across America, parents are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the state of public education. The current state of our educational system & economy shines a spotlight on problems with traditional schools. Class Dismissed showcases a growing trend in alternative education strategies that are working for many families across America. Frustrated with the traditional school system, a family in L.A. pulls their two kids out of school and takes their education into their own hands.

After the film, join director Jeremy Stuart, Diane Flynn Keith, and members of the featured family in a discussion with the audience.
