A New Documentary Reveals The Inconvenient Truth About Education

On my movie list for this weekend is “Waiting for Superman.” It’s a new documentary about how America’s education system is failing our kids. As a former teacher at a poorly funded school, I feel like there are no words to describe how insane (in both a negative and sometimes a positive way) it is to be a teacher or student in today’s world. As painful as I think this documentary will be to watch, I’m hoping that it will raise public awareness and understanding about the education crisis.
