Beyond the Classroom presents "Pricele$$"

Description:
Pricele$$ exposes the real consequences of an out-of-control electoral system that obligates our leaders to the giant industries that bankroll their election campaigns. The filmmakers follow a river of money through two national policies that routinely poising the environment and keep sending American troops to dangerous lands. Pricle$$ provides an unfiltered, non-partisan look at the root of this dysfunction  at every day policy-making in Washington, D.C., where big-money donors and lobbyists have regular access to powerful members of Congress. It is a process that can to often result in shortsighted policies that waste our tax dollars, degrade our quality of life or diminish our security. At what precise point are we losing our government-for the people, and what is a possible, practical solution? How can our elections be up for sale when democracy after all, is priceless? {Will appear in FYI on Oct 31, 2012
