Default Education Panel, Waiting For Superman Screening

Screening of
Waiting For Superman
March 31st, 6pm LC 28.

The same director as An Inconvenient Truth, Waiting for Superman sheds light on the state of our education system.

Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim reminds us that education "statistics" have names: Anthony, Francisco, Bianca, Daisy, and Emily, whose stories make up the engrossing foundation of WAITING FOR SUPERMAN. As he follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, Guggenheim undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying "drop-out factories" and "academic sinkholes," methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems.

"The fate of our country won't be decided on a battlefield, it will be determined in a classroom".
