Yesterday we covered the new rules for tenure in NYC and New Jersey, and the reasons these changes were significant. We also made a pitch for everyone to watch the film ‘Waiting For Superman’, which discussed the problems of our public schools.
**This film is no longer available on YouTube.
However, a PBS special on the film is still around, and I’ve included it below.
Our children are getting an inferior education to the one we received 30 years ago. America can’t continue to be the beacon of freedom for the world if we continue to mass-produce ill-educated children. We are sentencing these kids to lives of mediocrity, and we are dooming our country in the process.
It doesn’t matter if you have kids in the system or not. We all pay for the public school education of our children. We owe it to them, and to ourselves, to have that education be superior, rather than substandard…or worse.
