1. In the film the issues of race, class, and gender and their impact on education are examined. Have any of these issues affected the Japanese education system? If so, which? And, how? If not, why?

2. How important is it to integrate schools?

3. Is it necessary to have schools just for the elite? Should there be all-African-American schools or all-boys/all-girls schools?
