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.
