Moving Documentary about School Choice in the US

A few years ago, I had a chance to see a 30 minute documentary called Let Me Rise about a program called the DC Opportunity Scholarship in the US. It is a moving film, about how a school choice program gave opportunity to many poor African-American youth in Washington DC. The program was abruptly cancelled in 2009.
This is an ongoing political fight in the US. Here's a link to the video: http://www.voicesofschoolchoice.org/. This has some important lessons for our own situation.
