I agree. As a parent, I don't like the idea of "movies" being shown to kids
on class time as "treats." When I was a kid (a few lifetimes ago), we only
had education 16mm films, but we still thought of watching a film as a
treat, that is, a break from the routine. There are many fine educational
titles that could both teach and be a treat.

Fair use and K-12 teachers? I still wonder about the high school history
teacher teaching the summer class in U.S. History and using all those
movies. "The Alamo" is not exactly historically accurate. Perhaps we're
more appalled at what is being shown in lieu of real teaching than in fair
use?
