4.0 out of 5 stars Good overview of challenges and solutions, June 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Waiting for "SUPERMAN": How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools (Participant Guide Media) (Paperback)
This book provides a good overview of the current challenges facing public education and is written from the perspective of multiple viewpoints and several qualified people and groups making a positive contribution to today's youth. Not all parts of the book relate directly to education and the dramatic personalization of the "lottery scenes" in the movie is lost, but overall, the book does provide parents and concerned citizens actionable information to make a difference.

Every parent and truly, every American interested in the future of the country should at least read this book in accompaniment with "The Life and Death of the Great American School System". While the solutions to the challenges presented are not easy, with the right amount of inspiration and knowledge, everyone can contribute no matter what you do for a living.
