Waiting for Superman is a "gripping, heartbreaking, and ultimately hopeful documentary" about the crisis of public education in America. The battle to solve many of our country's problems starts with addressing one of our biggest ones: education. A great education is crucial for the success of the young students in our school system right now - the same kids who are the future of our country.
And to reach their full potential, they need a great education. But the school system in the United States is failing so many of these kids, despite years of well-intended reforms and large sums of money spent on the problem. Today, 1.2 million students drop out of high school every year in the US. And dropouts are more likely to go to prison, to need social welfare assistance, and are less likely to vote. Watch this short video, designed by Jorge R. Canedo Estrada and published by Buck.tv, to learn more about these serious problems plaguing our country today.
