Waiting for Superman

There’s a new movie coming out soon called Waiting for Superman. It looks to be a devastating appraisal of the education system, and how it fails kids. I can’t wait to see it.

  1. I’d like to find a friend to watch it with. I hear that there’s a lot of teacher-bashing in it. I suspect I won’t like it, even though I’m not happy with schools. If it’s as bad as I hear, I’ll hate having given them my money…

      That’s a stinging article… though it seems like she hasn’t actually seen the movie yet.

      I do hope they treat the subject better than searching for a villain and blaming them. The difficulty is more systemic, and I think it requires a cold look in the (systemic) mirror to start to try to address it as necessary. Blaming teachers, kids, or parents will never do.
