Movie Night in Mechanicsville Next Week!
Americans for Prosperity Foundation and the Friedman Foundation for Educational Choice Present:
The award winning documentary Waiting for Superman
Featuring an introduction by renowned author and political analyst Kate Obenshain
Friday, July 31, 6:00 pm at 8700 Bell Creek Road, Mechanicsville, VA 23116
Waiting for Superman is a provocative and cogent examination of the crisis of public education in the United States told through multiple interlocking stories–from a handful of students and their families whose futures hang in the balance, to the educators and reformers trying to find real and lasting solutions within a dysfunctional system. Tackling such politically radioactive topics as the power of teachers’ unions and the entrenchment of school bureaucracies, Waiting for Superman reveals the invisible forces that have held true education reform back for decades.
This event is part of the Friedman Legacy for Freedom Day celebrations taking place nationwide in honor of Milton Friedman’s 100th birthday.
There is no cost to attend this event. Food and refreshments will be provided.
