Lot’s of people are going to see the movie, “Waiting for Superman.” If you haven’t seen it, I recommend you do. At the very least, it is thought-provoking. Too bad that so many viewers seem more interested in affixing blame for America’s education crisis than in working for change. Blaming is a form of waiting. It is easy to point fingers. It’s easy to make excuses. It’s much harder to say, “I have a personal responsibility to do my part to ensure that we improve education results for kids.”
Here at the Community Center for Education Results, we are working with hundreds of people from South King County and South Seattle on the Road Map for Education Results. No one is “waiting” or “blaming.. We are, however, growing increasingly excited about what can be collectively achieved if our communities align efforts around the Road Map goals for improving education in our region.
We are not waiting. Join us.
