Waiting for Superman - How Public Education Fails Our Kids

I spent yesterday afternoon with this documentary, and while it touched on themes I felt to be true, the quantification of the failure of our public schools was shocking to me.  The bottom line is that the system is designed to protect teachers - not children - even if the teachers are ineffectual or incompetent.

It was a huge eye opener to me, and literally broke my heart.  As a nation we are falling further and further behind, and are dooming hundreds of thousands of kids to a life of no hope all because the system set up to edcuate them is failing.

I implore you to watch this film.
