Waiting for Superman commentary

Michael B. Romain is a volunteer with the Tutor/Mentor Connection. He spends time looking at the information we share, what our goals are, and then shares what he is learning on a blog hosted on the Tutor/Mentor Connection forum. Yesterday he posted a commentary on the Waiting for Superman Movie that I encourage you to read.

Michael is one of a growing number of people browsing the Tutor/Mentor Connection and Cabrini Connections web sites, and writing articles reflecting their own understanding. Visit this blog and see how students from DePaul University are involved.

Waiting for Superman tickles the surface of a very complex problem, which is different for kids living in huge urban school districts with large numbers of people living in segregated poverty neighborhoods than for people living in smaller, and more economically and socially diverse communities.

Unless significant time is spent understanding the problem, the solutions will just be superficial.
