“The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting For “Superman”” highlights the real-life experiences of public school parents, students and educators to show how these so-called reforms are actually hurting public education. The film discusses the kinds of real reform – inside schools and in our society as a whole – that we urgently need to genuinely transform education in this country.
Sunday, February 5, 1pm at the Media Center at the Met, 325 Public St., Providence.
