Free Screening of 'Waiting for Superman'

DATE
Wed, Sep 24, 2014
TIME
7:00pm - 9:00pm

'Waiting for Superman' is an award-winning documentary about the current, ailing state of public education in the U.S., once considered the best in the world. Oscar®-winning filmmaker Davis Guggenheim ('An Inconvenient Truth') follows a handful of promising kids through a system that inhibits academic growth. The exhaustive review of public education, surveying “drop-out factories” and “academic sinkholes,” also offers hope by exploring innovative approaches taken by education reformers and charter schools. (2010, 111 min. rated PG)

Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Tulane Reading Project, Newcomb-Tulane College, and Center for Public Service at Tulane University. For more info, contact the Newcomb-Tulane College Office of Cocurricular Programs at donuts@tulane.edu or 504-865-5728.
