The fate of our country won’t be decided on a battlefield, it will be determined in a classroom.

Waiting for “Superman” is a 2010 film which analyzes the failures of the American public education system by following several students as they strive to be accepted into a charter school.

It received the Audience Award for best documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival and the Best Documentary Feature at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.

The film’s title is based on an interview with Geoffrey Canada wherein he recounts being told (as a child) by his mother that Superman was not real, and how he was frightened because there was nobody to save him.
