Waiting for Superman is an award-winning documentary about the current, ailing state of public education in the U.S., once considered the best in the world. Oscar®-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits academic growth. The exhaustive review of public education, surveying “drop-out factories” and “academic sinkholes,” also offers hope by exploring innovative approaches taken by education reformers and charter schools.
