Waiting For 'Superman' (2012)

A documentary that points out the obvious, yet ignored flaws of our public school system. Not quite as well produced as it could have been, but effective nonetheless. The most powerful moment was the lottery drawing at the end—seeing true joy and disappointment on parent's faces when their children were or were not accepted to attend a charter school. Knowing that not getting in meant subjecting their child to a crap education from worthless teachers who cannot be fired.
