Two screenings of the response to the documentary Waiting for Superman, exploring the American education system. April 2nd screening followed by a panel discussion (details below).

The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman
Dir. The Grassroots Education Movement, 2011, 55 min.
A group of New York City public school teachers and parents from the Grassroots Education Movement wrote and produced this documentary in response to the Davis Guggenheim's film, Waiting for Superman. The Inconvenient Truth provides a critique of an increasingly free-market driven education system, the undermining of teachers unions and the overall faith in the idea that charter schools are just what the country needs. This film highlights the real-life experiences of public school parents and educators inside schools and in our society and takes a holistic look at education reform.

*April 2nd screening followed by a panel Discussion with Mark Torres - Harlem teacher, People Power Movement member; Khem Irby - Community Education Council District 13; The MANY Julie Cavanagh - teacher, Grassroots Education Movement member
