Super School is a new app for the iPad, that’s inspired by the award-winning documentary ‘Waiting for Superman’ – that focused on the crisis in American education. The Waiting for Superman project site outlines its mission as follows:
Fixing America’s public education system won’t be easy — but together, it’s possible.
The Waiting for “Superman” social action campaign has one primary goal: to ensure that every child receives a great education. The campaign seeks to build public awareness, ignite personal involvement and inspire real social change.
The campaign’s four core initiatives are:
Setting academic standards that are on par with the world’s best
Recruiting and rewarding great teachers
Creating and nurturing excellent schools, and
Increasing literacy rates
The following pages are your toolkit for educational reform. Learn more about the Waiting For “Superman” initiatives below, and find ways to take action with our “Help Your School” and “Fix the System” tips throughout this site. Help our students get the quality education they deserve. Our country’s future depends on it.
And every child deserves a great education.
The Super School app aims to assist in achieving these goals. For me, that immediately makes this a hugely appealing app – as I believe this is an enormously important and worthwhile cause.
