Waiting for "Superman"

Last night we went to a screening for "Waiting for 'Superman'" 
a new documentary on public schools in the United States.  
Wow.


My kids have gone to two charter schools and two magnet schools.  (They now all go to a fabulous charter school.)  We are lucky that in our area we have choices (even though I didn't feel like our local school was one of those.)  I think the main point of the movie was that we need to become active in fixing this problem (volunteer, campaign, donate, get informed.)   


Fantastic movie.  I really encourage everyone even slightly interested in education to go see it.
Opens tomorrow most places! 
Just do it.  
Don't wait for Superman!
