About the lm: The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman Directed by The Grassroots Education Movement, 2011, 55 min. http://www.waitingforsupermantruth.org A group of New York City public school teachers and parents from the Grassroots Education Movement wrote and produced this documentary in response to the Davis Guggenheim's lm, Waiting for Superman. The Inconvenient Truth provides a critique of an increasingly free-market driven education system, the undermining of teachers unions and the overall faith in the idea that charter schools are just what the country needs. This lm highlights the real-life experiences of public school parents and educators inside schools and in our society and takes a holistic look at education reform. Sponsors
