Another Inconvienent Truth: Waiting for Superman by Davis Guggenheim

Waiting_for_Superman_posterEvery morning, in big cities, suburbs and small towns across America, parents send their children off to school with the highest of hopes.

But a shocking number of students in the United States attend schools where they have virtually no chance of learning–failure factories likelier to produce drop-outs than college graduates. And despite decades of well-intended reforms and huge sums of money spent on the problem, our public schools haven’t improved markedly since the 1970s.

Why? There is an answer. And it’s not what you think. From An Inconvenient Truth director Davis Guggenheim comes Waiting for ‘Superman’, a provocative and cogent examination of the crisis of public education in the United States told through multiple interlocking stories–from a handful of students and their families whose futures hang in the balance, to the educators and reformers trying to find real and lasting solutions within a dysfunctional system.

Tackling such politically radioactive topics as the power of teachers’ unions and the entrenchment of school bureaucracies, Guggenheim reveals the invisible forces that have held true education reform back for decades. Waiting for ‘Superman’ coming in Theaters September 24th 2010.

Every child deserves a great education. The Waiting for Superman” campaign seeks to inspire citizen activism by building public awareness, igniting personal involvement, and inspiring real social change. The campaign will focus on four primary initiatives where Americans can make the greatest impact: making sure we set world-class academic standards so all students are prepared students for life beyond high school, recruiting and rewarding great teachers, creating and nurturing excellent schools, and increasing literacy rates.

    South Carolina has a high school graduation rate of only 61%.

    This ranks far below the national average of 73 percent. The funding for South Carolina’s public schools has more than doubled in the past decade – which has resulted in a graduation rate increase of only 0.2%! Source: OMG Facts
