As you begin locating schools for your children, and asking yourself, public or private, maybe you should take a look into a film that will help make that decision for you. A movie that is a must see said by the critics, has been causing major ruckus within the educational world. The movie, Waiting for Superman, by Davis Guggenheim, shines light to our education system on terms of how unfortunate our children really are in today’s standards of succeeding.
The movie takes you through the educational system, and how it’s changed, and progressively been slandered in the last fifty years. You take a glimpse through the eyes of the children who want a better life, they hope getting into charter schools will help break the cycle of attending the, “drop out high schools,” that they are destined to attend in the future. Unfortunately, the children are in what we call an, "educational lottery." There are just not enough spaces for children to attend these charter schools, and the number of entries in comparisons are outstanding.
As you proceed to really investigate what is happening to our educational system, take in full effect that the world around us is changing. In order to meet demands of our children today, our schools, and teachers must change with it.
As it presumes to show how teachers in other states, outside of Texas, are in unions, and how hard it is (almost impossible) to dispose of what we call, “bad teachers.” It also illustrates what it means when children are left behind, once a legislative move to ensure our students today are meeting all standards. But is it really just that?
