Mrs. Mimi's Teacher Review of "Waiting for Superman"


Well, we teachers are certainly waiting for something to prevail. Common sense? Our point of view? Reality? Superman? If you could have one or all of the above handy when you arrive, that would be fabulous.

If you haven’t already heard, there is a new movie called “Waiting for Superman” which chronicles five families who are desperate (with a side of extra drama) to find out if it is indeed their lucky day to win the lottery, the charter school admission lottery...

One message I received loud and clear from this film that claims to portray the current situation in our school system: charter schools can save your life and public schools are the devil.
