WACO, Texas, April 14, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- Where the popular documentary Waiting for Superman leaves parents hopelessly waiting for millions of dollars in donations and greater government intervention to rescue their children's education, "IndoctriNation: Public Schools and the Decline of Christianity in America" (view trailer) shows audiences how to take matters into their own hands.
Scottish-born Director/Producer Colin Gunn's new 90-minute documentary film "IndoctriNation" will release June 28. Gunn struck a stark contrast between IndoctriNation and Waiting for Superman during a press briefing at the National Religious Broad-casters annual convention last month in Nashville, TN.
"Everyone knows there is a problem," Gunn says. "The difference is, we ask what the Bible says about education. The issues brought up in Waiting for Superman are not solved in the film. They miss the mark. We are bringing children back to Christ."
The answer to the catastrophe of public education will not come from a government think-tank or a new institution, but rather from within the faithful family units that remain at the center of our nation's principles, Gunn stated.
In the film, Gunn, a homeschool father who lives in Texas, invites audiences along as he travels across America with his wife and seven children in a big yellow school bus. During a road trip from Texas to Massachusetts where Horace Mann birthed public education nearly two hundred years ago, audiences can come along and observe riveting interviews with educational experts and people of all walks of life as they weigh in on our modern educational system -- what is perhaps the most pivotal issue of our time.
While a majority of the conversation about education focuses on how to improve the public school system by spending more tax dollars, hiring more unqualified teachers, writing more slanted curriculum, Gunn's solution is to give children an explicitly Christian education to ensure that they are taught that God is the center of all things. "There is a deep philosophical issue in education. Who is sovereign and who will that child serve? Math, science, social studies -- every subject taught in school is designed to give glory to God," Gunn concluded.
As part documentary, testimonial, confessional and rebuke, IndoctriNation will challenge and encourage millions of Americans who need to know what history, experience, and the Scriptures have to say about the discipleship and training of the next generation.
