For Immediate Release:
SURVEYING THE NATION’S PUBLIC EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM
Denver-(October 4, 2010) – Studio 12 host, Tamara Banks, will lead a discussion on Wednesday, October 6 at 8:00pm surrounding the nation’s educational system. Inspired by the new documentary film, “Waiting for Superman”, the conversation will review the nation’s public education system and examine how the documentary relates to Colorado’s educational system.
“Waiting for Superman” is a documentary film about how talented students are setup to fail within our “academic sinkholes.” The documentary explores the roles in which both teachers and schools inhibit, rather than encourage, a student’s ability to learn and succeed. It is a powerful and moving film that shows where and how America is failing to support its students.
The program is available for free video-on-demand viewing on the CPT-Channel 12 website at www.cpt12.org after October 8, 2010.
