Run to the theater to see Waiting For Superman, a brilliant documentary by Oscar-winner, Davis Guggenheim, that says the current state of public education in America is failing our children and needs to be rescued.

He makes a good point by examining what works and what doesn't work.

Guggenheim's film is not an angry, misinformed diatribe, but an intelligent, well-crafted history lesson filled with human emotions.

Expect to be challenged and enlightened as you follow five families trying to get the best education possible, and a movie that will have you thinking and talking for days.
