I bet you thought the stories on Pixar’s hit The Incredibles were over, didn’t you. Well, they’re not. The New York Times has chimed in with a story on the message behind The Incredibles and the pressures to conform that are put on today’s children.
Other parents are complaining about a decline in programs for gifted children, leaving students to languish in "untracked" and unstimulating classrooms. Some critics of education believe that boys especially are languishing in schools that emphasize cooperation instead of competition. No Child Left Behind, indeed.
By the way, The Incredibles had another decent weekend pulling in an estimated $26.7 million bringing its in theatre total to $177.8 million. Not too shabby. Disney’s film National Treasure also did well in the number one spot with $35.3 million.
