MyBrownBaby Fresh: Waiting For “Superman” DVD
This is what it says on the back of the box for the newly-released DVD, Waiting For Superman:
From the Academy Award-winning Director of An Inconvenient Truth comes the groundbreaking feature film that provides an engaging and inspiring look at public education in the United States. Waiting For Superman has helped launch a movement to achieve a real and lasting change through the compelling stories of five unforgettable students such as Emily, a Silicon Valley eighth-grader who is afraid of being labeled as unfit for college and Francisco, a Bronx first-grader whose mom will do anything to give him a shot at a better life. Waiting For Superman will leave a lasting and powerful impression that you will want to share with your friends and family.
Yup. What the back of the box says. And the trailer, too. We’ve got our copy, and plan on watching it with our babies so that they understand the game, recognize the struggle and acknowledge that the stakes are high. Buy your copy of Waiting for “Superman” HERE.

This movie more than any other in recent memory made me cry. I mean BAWL like an infant. My family could have been any one of those families and we are. we recently went through some nail biting when the great charter junior high school my daughter wanted to attend let parents know that not all of the students from my daughter’s charter elementary school would have a spot. Gasp! What to do when you have limited choices and even more limited financial resources? Many of our public schools are just not making it for our children. Charter schools often offer more in the way of resources, desire, training for teachers and best practices for our children and are producing results. I can’t and won’t play games with my kids’ lives and none of us should have our kids’ futures depend on the whims of a lottery pull.
