Waiting for Superman has sparked more conversation about our public schools than any other event in recent memory. While there’s much food for thought, at All Kinds of Minds we are interested in the reactions people are having to how the core business of schooling–LEARNING–is portrayed. Tell us what you think about this controversial movie and the discussion it is spurring. How can we collectively introduce a stronger focus on learning into these conversations?
As the movie becomes more broadly available, we’ll continue to post blogs by others we find thought-provoking.
