Personal Community Innovation Project

For my Personal Community Innovation Project, I think I would like to read Waiting for Superman: How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools. There was a film produced based off of this book, so you may have seen it. I did not actually see the movie, but I think this book is going to be very interesting. I hope to get a better idea about the causes of failing public schools and what can be done to prevent this from occuring because I think that children and their education is such a prominent and important issue in current times. In addition, I plan on looking into articles that may present a counter viewpoint, such as opinions on the parent trigger law and other school options, such as the voucher system. I will keep you updated on my reactions to the book as soon as I begin reading!
