The Show Must Go On

In a follow-up to the hearing I watched last Thursday the Daily Mail reports that Algore’s movie can be shown in England’s public schools, with a warning from the teacher that movie is presenting “partisan political views” and that the children should not accept the viewpoint the movie endorses. Although the Daily Mail describes this as a partial victory for the plaintiffs, in my opinion it’s pretty slight. I haven’t seen the movie, but there was a detailed discussion during the hearing about the contents and I read several articles about it back when it premiered. It seems unlikely that some verbal “guidance” from a teacher before an hour + of well-presented images and sound is going to carry too much weight for middle schoolers.
