Waiting for Superman
Waiting for Superman
Dir. David Guggenheim, 2010, 102 min.
For a nation that proudly declared it would leave no child behind, America continues to do so at alarming rates. Despite increased spending and politicians' promises, our buckling public-education system, once the best in the world, routinely forsakes the education of millions of children. Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim reminds us that education "statistics" have names: Anthony, Francisco, Bianca, Daisy, and Emily, whose stories make up the foundation of Waiting for Superman. By embracing the belief that good teachers make good schools as well as critiquing the role of unions this film explores some of the approaches taken by education reformers and charter schools.

* April 1st screening followed by a panel discussion with:
- Ernesteine Augustus - Harlem teacher, People Power Movement member
- Lisa Donlan - Community Education Council District 1, Grassroots Education Movement member
- Julie Cavanagh - teacher, Grassroots Education Movement member
- Noah Gotbaum - Community Education Council District 3 member
