"Waiting for Superman" is a documentary about the public school system in America. It has just appeared at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and has already been bought by Paramount.
Though I haven't seen the film, I imagine that it will have an impact on the public schools. While the film points out the many flaws in the system, it does offer possible solutions and hope.
Below is an interview with the director of "Waiting for Superman," Davis Guggenheim. You can find it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8hn8Rr-uOM
