Inconvenient Truth

Premiere Screening & Panel Discussion

Benning Public Library

3935 Benning Road, NE

Washington, DC 20019

Please join WTU President Nathan Saunders, General Vice President Candi Peterson, community and education leaders for a premiere screening and panel discussion about the documentary, "The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting for Superman." This documentary was written and directed by New York City public school teachers and parents in response to the misleading film, "Waiting for Superman." It depicts the real-life experiences of public school parents and educators to show how these so-called reforms are actually hurting education. It also highlights the kinds of real reform - inside schools and in our society as a whole - that are urgently needed to genuinely transform education in this country.


**WTU members are encouraged to attend this free event and participate in an engaging discussion about the challenges facing education reform in general and in the District of Columbia Public school system.**
