I just saw a preview for a movie that had me on the edge of my seat. I cried and in the few short minutes was riveted. Waiting for Superman is a documentary coming out this fall. It follows a group of promising students through the battered school system of the United States. It presents the problems facing our educational system and is filled with statistics and information about how our schools are failing our children.
The movies website is a great place to start learning about the movie, and there are some really creative ways to get the public involved in the conversation and in the helping with the solution.
Tandem Teaching just wanted to give you a heads up on this revolutionary movie. You owe it your kid to keep yourself informed on these issues.
