Waiting for Superman : How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools
by Participant Media and Karl Weber




Overview -
Each book includes a 15 gift card from DonorsChoose.org to give to a classroom in need.

The American public school system is in crisis, failing millions of students, producing as many drop-outs as graduates, and threatening our economic future. By 2020, the United States will have 123 million high-skill jobs to fill -- and fewer than 50 million Americans qualified to fill them. Educators, parents, political leaders, business people, and concerned citizens are determined to save our educational system. Waiting for Superman offers powerful insights from some of those at the leading edge of educational innovation, including Bill and Melinda Gates, Michelle Rhee, Geoffrey Canada, and more. Waiting for Superman is an inspiring call for reform and includes special chapters that provide resources, ideas, and hands-on suggestions for improving the schools in your own community as well as throughout the nation. For parents, teachers, and concerned citizens alike, Waiting for Superman is an essential guide to the issues, challenges, and opportunities facing America's schools.
