The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman

In the spirit of today’s State of the Union conference, which was very heartening to be a part of, here is the Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman in its entirety.

On top of being a good refutation of Davis Guggenheim’s fluff piece, it is also a good articulation of what social justice unionism is about and why teachers should be on the forefront of such a movement.

The popularity of the movie continues to spread. It has had screenings around the country and will only resonate more as the corporate takeover of public education continues.

Show it to everyone you know. Here is the Facebook page for the movie.

    • I saw that the other day and it really is pathetic. Imagine a so-called “reporter” or “documentarian” who doesn’t even have the critical thinking skills to question anything the president does. This is what reporting has come to today.

  3. Thanks for posting. Can’t wait to watch this.

  4. Fantastic. I can see teachers sending your blog link to other teachers, parents, and students throughout the internet to find out what’s really going on in education.

    Hopefully, this sheds a light to many more.

    Thanks.

    More and more it is apparent to me that the fortunes of a few are being used to determine the misfortunes of millions. Why is this happening in this country?
