invites you to attend
A  Script for Reforming America's Ailing Schools
A Candid Conversation about Education
featuring a screening of
WAITING FOR SUPERMAN

From David Guggenheim, the director of An Inconvenient Truth, the quasi-documentary Waiting For Superman offers a sharp examination of America's public school system and charter schools. The film looks at all the players  NYC public schools, the teachers' union, parents and students  and one large scale attempt to show that "zip cod is not destiny." (USA, 2011, 111 min., color, 35mm / Academy Award Nominee: Best Documentary)

Panelists will lead a discussion of the issues raised in this provocative film, the effects of "No Child Left Behind," and the roles technology and the not-for-profit sector in the multi-billion dollar education market.

The panel will be moderated by Davenport (Mike) Plumer, former K-12 teacher, Professor of Education at Empire State College and New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), Vice President for Planning and Education, NYIT; and consultant to the New York State Education Department. A second speaker will look at the film from an alternative perspective.
