Don't Wait for Superman to Fix our Schools!
See Waiting for 'Superman' this weekend at the UA Tara Theatre
2345 Cheshire Bridge Road NE, Atlanta, GA - (404) 634-6288
Hallelujah! Charter schools have finally arrived. They are the subject of the powerful and courageous new film Waiting for 'Superman,' which opens this weekend in Atlanta. Charter schools are also the focus of the "Done Waiting Coalition" -- a national coalition of public education reform groups.
Many problems plague our public education system and there is no single solution. But this much is clear: It's not the kids. It's not their parents. It's not their neighborhoods. It's an outdated bureaucratic system, the special interests that benefit from it, and the politicians who protect it. Children’s futures must not depend on the zip code where they live or whether they win the educational lottery.
For too long, we waited as we spent more money, reduced class size, and chased the latest fad. We Are Done Waiting. We know what works and we need more of it now. The kids can't wait. You shouldn't either. See the movie. Join the movement.
- Expand proven school models, such as high-performing public charter schools
- Demand a highly effective teacher in every classroom, and treat them like a valued professional.
- Put kids before the politics of special interests
