I suspect most readers here would not respond positively if I recommended a new movie from filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, the Director of Al Gore’s infamous An Inconvenient Truth. But think again. This is a must see movie (and I haven’t even seen it yet!).
Waiting for Superman is the story of our faltering public educational system, and the failure of government and society to offer families, and especially children in failing schools, real choices – including the chance to attend private schools. The movie has premiered in other cities, but opens for the first time this weekend in Chicago. If I wasn’t attending our pilgrimage in LaCrosse, I would be purchasing a ticket to see this film.
Anyone who has seen, or plans to go see the movie, please let us know what you think.
