Waiting For Superman Is Heartbreaking

Waiting For Superman
is the new documentary from Davis Guggenheim. In it, the failing American education system is dissected. It is a sad, sad state of affairs, and even watching the trailer will make you want to cry. It's more than a dumbing down of America, it's to the point where this generation will be less literate than the one before it, for the first time in several generations.

This is worse than mere consumerist, plasticized culture. This is a disaster.
