What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while younger kids may not understand the complex problems presented in this documentary about the state of American schools, Waiting for "Superman" is a riveting watch for older tweens and up, especially those who may not be aware of what's happening in schools besides theirs. It's an enlightening -- albeit one-sided -- look at education in this country. Depending on what's happening at tweens' and teens' own schools, this film (which is from the director of An Inconvenient Truth) may spur them, and you, to action.
