Next weeks show will focus on the film The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for “Superman.”  This film exposes and interrupts the dominant narrative within the film “Waiting for Superman” which serves as another catalyst for the privatization of public education by hedge fund millionaires and corporate interests. As the filmmakers put it: Public Education is not for sale!
