Waiting for Superman

Waiting for Superman is a documentary that analyzes the educational deficits of inner-city schools. This documentary was really empowering. I heard about this video from one of my friends in the Ed.D program. She was giving a presentation about the leadership style of Michelle Rhee. If you are not familiar with Michelle Rhee, she was the chancellor of the Washington, D.C public schools from 2007-2010. The interesting thing about Michelle is that she had only taught three years before becoming the chancellor, she had no Ph.D and have never ran a school district before.

  1. I really enjoyed this documentary...I watched it awhile ago on Netflix. If you have Netflix streaming, they actually have a few other really interesting education documentaries as well.
