10/14/10: Waiting for Superman

Salt Lake City, Utah – Thursday, we talk to Davis Guggenheim about his latest documentary "Waiting for Superman." Guggenheim, who directed "An Inconvenient Truth," has turned his camera to American public education and he says the system is in cardiac arrest. The film follows five families as they struggle to get their kids into top charter schools. The bigger question is though, why don't we have more great schools? We'll talk about what Guggenheim learned are the biggest problems and the most promising solutions.

  • "Waiting for Superman" opens Friday, October 15 at the Broadway Centre Cinemas in Salt Lake City. For show times and more information, click here
