Waiting For Superman: Get Schooled

It's no secret our education system
in this country is not what it should be.
Why is it so foreign to expect and demand
excellence and high performance
from our schools and their students?
How do we ignite the system and 
 inspire teachers and students
to be the best they can be
 and inspire real social change?

"Davis Guggenheim, the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth,
 examines the failings of the US education system in his controversial 
and poignant documentary Waiting for “Superman.
This is not only documentary though, it is a fascinating 
social action campaign that has one primary goal: to ensure that every child receives a great education. The campaign seeks to build public awareness, ignite personal involvement and inspire real social change.

The debate is very complex, however at the core
is, great teachers deserve great schools,
for they inspire our future.
The possibilities are endless.
