Waiting for "Superman"

This hotly anticipated (and heavily hyped) documentary breaks down the troubling statistics of today's educational system to introduce us to some actual, struggling students. By dissecting the system, piece by piece, director Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth) finds bad teachers, broken schools, indifferent administrators and (unsurprisingly) failed students. The conclusion (charter schools are awesome!) is a bit simple-minded, but at least Guggenheim exposes the problems for all to see. 102 minutes PG.
