The American public education system is in crisis. Millions of students attend failure factories that produce more drop-outs than graduates- millions more attend nice schools that mask mediocre achievement. The U.S.s reading and math scoresMoreThe American public education system is in crisis. Millions of students attend failure factories that produce more drop-outs than graduates- millions more attend nice schools that mask mediocre achievement. The U.S.s reading and math scores stagnate and even fall behind, while other countries continue to advance. But many are working to reinvent this system. The film Waiting for Superman, directed by An Inconvenient Truths Davis Guggenheim, chronicles these efforts through the interlocking stories of a handful of students and families searching for alternatives, and of reformers proving that all kids can learn. Expanding on the films arguments, the book Waiting for Superman explores politically charged topics through a series of essays by thinkers at the leading edge of educational innovation. It shows how failing schools destroy neighborhoods - not the reverse - and how research reveals that dedicated, attentive teachers are what help at-risk kids succeed. With candor, poignancy, and hope, this book encourages those inspired by the film to join the battle to save American education and our childrens future.
