Waiting For 'Superman'

Documentary from the director of An Inconvenient Truth that analyses the failures of America's public education by following several students through the educational system.

"For a nation that proudly declared it would leave no child behind, America continues to do so at alarming rates. Despite increased spending and politicians’ promises, our buckling public-education system, once the best in the world, routinely forsakes the education of millions of children. Filmmaker Davis Guggenheim reminds us that education “statistics” have names: Anthony, Francisco, Bianca, Daisy, and Emily, whose stories make up Waiting for 'Superman'.

"As he follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth, Guggenheim undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying “drop-out factories” and “academic sinkholes,” methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems." (Sundance Film Festival 2010)

Winner of the Audience Award (Documentary) at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Winner of Best Documentary at the 2010 Critics' Choice Movie Awards.
