TBOE Update #1. Roll Call. Thanks For All The Support!


We are so fortunate to have so many people supporting our film on Kickstarter. It has been a very good week for us. We have raised over ten percent of our goal and are on track to make our funding goal of 33K. We have secured some key interviews with people that are at  the forefront of this debate. We will be heading down to Texas to interview Jimmy Dunne, the founder of No Spanking Zone. We will also interview Dr. George Holden, a leader in child psychology and behavior. We are also trying to get interviews with Texas Rep. Alma Allen and Texas Rep. Harold Dutton. Then we head to Ohio to spend some time at The Center For Effective Discipline. The leading organization against corporal punishment in public schools. If all goes well, we will jet to D.C. to hit up Rep. Carolyn McCarthy who has proposed a bill to ban corporal punishment in public schools on the national level. Our schedule has been pushed up a month because of this new proposed bill. We start principal photography October 12, 2011. We will share our experiences on our Kickstarter page. We hope that this will add to our current momentum. Thank you all so very much for your support! We could not make this film with out you.

Here is a Roll Call Of Our Current Supporters. Thank You All So Very Much!
