Challenging "Waiting for Superman"
Bruhn, Molle
Phi Delta Kappan, v95 n5 p47-51 Feb 2014
A group of New York City public school teachers, angry about the depiction of public schools in 'Waiting for Superman," decide to make their own film about the realities of the current education reform movement. They persevered even though they had no budget when they started and lacked a background in filmmaking. "The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman" was released in May 2011 and has proven to be an important piece of the ever growing pushback against corporate education reform.
