Waiting for SUPERMAN

October 12th, 2010

Most of you have seen or at least heard about the movie "Waiting for Superman." The award winning documentary, has now spawned a book. A series of essays by cutting edge educational thinkers exploring reforms and how to fix our broken public school system.

One of the most astute of these analyses is Jay Mathews, the education columnist for The Washington Post. In the film and in his essay he argues that successful schools begin not with parents, or academic theories, or new building, but with great teachers. My conversation with Jay Matthews about the movie and the book Waiting for "SUPERMAN": How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools.
