A Civilised Society

Kiwi filmmaker Alister Barry tells the epic story of the struggle between teachers and the radical right during the 1980s and '90s, as the free market zealots took power with an eye to transforming the education system into a competitive business model. The third in Barry's loose trilogy examining the rise of the Right in New Zealand, this is essential viewing for anyone concerned about the way we raise, and teach, our future generations.
