Waiting for Superman

WOW! This is one of the most powerful documentaries i have ever seen.  I always knew that our public education system was broken but i had no idea it was this bad.  Out of 30 developed nations America ranks 25 in math and 21 in science and is dropping fast YET we rand number one in self-esteem and confidence!  This is a heartbreaking movie that cronicles 5 families trying to get into charter schools.  the lottery for these schools is like 735 applicants for 26 spots, but this is their only hope.  It would be interesting to get a teachers take on this movie because it is very negative toward the unions.  Maybe Chris Christie is on to something...
