Sputnik Moment

20071 hr 27 min
This film dramatically tells the story of the 18 months that changed American education forever. The change was provoked by the fear of Sputnik -- and American parents, students, educators, government, the whole nation really, got together and radically improved science, math and engineering education and much more. Language labs. Classes for gifted kids. All of that is here. The Sputnik Moment is a wonderful story of a wonderful time, a time that President Obama frequently refers to.
