Description

Tufts Active Citizens of New York (TACNY), a chapter of the Tufts University Alumni Association, invites you to join your fellow Tufts alumni to watch and discuss this provocative documentary about our country's education system. Waiting for Superman follows the lives of several promising students whose academic fates lie in the hands of an often antiquated and ineffective educational system. Waiting for Superman explores the topics of public education, charter schools, drop-out rates, and the consequences of only a few children winning the lottery for a good education. An expert panel of education professionals will lead a discussion following the event.
