"This documentary is an excellent teaching tool to demonstrate the damage school policies based on discriminatory motivations cause, such as losing generations of students who would otherwise thrive in our educational system."
— Aída Hurtado, Films for the Feminist Classroom
“A powerful documentary. I highly recommend this film to educators and students. Stolen Education provides a historical foundation for understanding current forms of racism that continue to operate in our schools and shape the educational experiences of our children. Stolen Education demands educators take a serious look at current policies that continue to underserve and marginalize students of color and linguistic minorities.”
— Charise Pimentel, Assistant Professor, Dept of Curriculum and Instruction, Texas State University
"Highly recommended. An outstanding resource and professional development tool for teacher education programs and educators at every level. In the broader context, Stolen Education is a powerful reminder that discrimination under the guise of 'doing what’s best for them' reaps discouragement and hardship."
