The Education Blame Game

Here, we take a closer look at Waiting for Superman analyzing its core argument that teachers' unions are to blame for the shortcomings in public education. Along the way, alternative opinions and potential 'guilty parties' will be examined. The exhibit examines director Davis Guggenheim's argument by listening to the discourse of both film critics and educational policy scholars, and by dissecting two of the film's key scenes from a technical perspective.
