Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Audiences may feel mixed emotions when at the end of the film a woman sums up her feelings about the campaign, declaring, "Now I know if a school ain't doing good, we can change that.""
‑ Anita Gates, New York Times
"A fascinating look at the new frontier of America's public education crisis -- a timely, relevant snapshot of a cause in active motion."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"We the Parents is a must-see civics lesson, an example of the power of grassroots organizing, of having a good lawyer, and of how seemingly small ideas can make big waves."
‑ Daphne Howland, Village Voice
""We the Parents," one-sided and promotional as it often feels, presents a possible solution, as well as the difficulties in achieving it."
‑ Sheila O'Malley, RogerEbert.com
"Equally inspirational and moving."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
