Waiting For Superman

Rainier Valley Rotary Club hosts a free showing/discussion of the award-winning film Waiting For Superman at MC Electric Vehicles, 1200 S. Dearborn St, 6:30pm on March 24.

Are Our Schools Getting The Job Done?

Researchers are continually coming up with comparisons that show our kids aren't getting as good an education as kids in Singapore, France, or Poland. Are our public schools giving our kids a track on success? Are they "failure factories"?

Waiting for Superman asks troubling questions, looks at schools that don't work, and teachers who don't teach. It challenges us to ask more questions. And to discuss what we can do to improve our kids' educations.
