November 12, 2010 The charter school community is invited to a screening of the new documentary, Waiting for "Superman," and town hall event this Monday, Nov. 15, at the Arclight Theater in Hollywood. The screening will be followed by a discussion focused on parent engagement featuring Davis Guggenheim (Director of Waiting for "Superman"), Ben Austin (Parent Revolution) and John Kobara (California Community Foundation), moderated by Roy Sekoff of the Huffington Post.
Waiting for "Superman" offers an exhaustive review of public education, surveying drop out factories and academic sinkholes, methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems. The film also explores innovative approaches taken by education reformers and charter schools that have refused to leave their students behind. Two California charter schools are featured, including KIPP LA Prep Middle School in Boyle Heights.
Educators, parents and students are encouraged to attend. The screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 15 at the Arclight Theater, 6360 West Sunset Boulevard, Hollywood. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 746-4848.
