Bowdon, Bob

Director, “The Cartel,” Founder, Choice Media

Website

Bob Bowdon has been a television producer, reporter and commentator for the past fifteen years. His varied career has seen him conducting in-depth on-camera interviews, anchoring newscasts and producing nationally-syndicated TV shows. He’s even appeared in satirical news sketches for the Onion News Network.

The Cartel, Bowdon’s award-winning documentary, reveals the nature and extent of corruption in public education. Behind every dropout factory, we discover, lurks a powerful, entrenched and self-serving cartel. And the film puts a human face on those who suffer as a result.

Ultimately, The Cartel is a call to action, not despair. The film profiles heroic administrators, teachers and students who defy the odds—particularly in schools of choice. The Cartel powerfully concludes that we must insist on immediate and systemic reform that puts students first. And we must do it now. That same conviction animates the work of Choice Media.
