"The Inconvenient Truth About Waiting for Superman” - A Film

A word from the filmmakers: Parents, children, educators, and communities across the country are united in calling for Real Reform Right Now! We reject “Waiting for Superman” and the privatization of PUBLIC Education by hedge fund millionaires and corporate interests.  PUBLIC Education is not for sale!

Real Reformers see the need to transform Public Education, School Governance, and Teacher Unions. In this film, they debunk a few of the myths surrounding school reform—including charter schools, the business model, poverty, and teachers’ & their unions’ roles in quality of education.
