"Never Back Down," the much anticipated but also criticized movie tackling the tricky topic of education reform, hit theaters Friday.

The film starring Oscar-nominated actress Viola Davis follows the story of two mothers and a teacher determined to turn their failing local public school into a charter school.

The movie has added steam to the education debate already stirring ahead of the presidential election.

Bob Waliszewski, director of Focus on the Family's entertainment review department "Plugged In Online," talked more about the film, on CBN's Newschannel Morning show, Sept. 28.
