America

Could America, the conservative docudrama defending this nation against its prominent, far-left critics, be a new teaching tool?

One politicians hopes so, and he’s putting his idea on paper for his fellow lawmakers to ponder, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

A Florida state senator plans to introduce a bill that would make Dinesh D’Souza’s docudrama, America, required viewing for most teenagers in the state, The Hollywood Reporter learned on Friday.

Republican Alan Hays said he’ll introduce in November his one-page bill that simply states that students in the 1,700 Florida public high schools and middle schools are to be shown the film unless their parents object.

The lawmaker says he simply wants to balance the educational scales in his state.

I saw the movie and walked out of the theater and said, ‘Wow, our students need to see this.’ And it’s my plan to show it to my colleagues in the legislature, too, before they’re asked to vote on the bill,” Hays said.

It wouldn’t be the first politically charged documentary to make it into the curricululm.

Al Gore’s 2006 film An Inconvenient Truth worked both the school and university circuit after its theatrical run.
