Challenging the American Education System: Waiting for "Superman"
An unflinching dedication to what is right, coupled with a profound desire to challenge the status quo, is what makes the best heroes, activists, and teachers. For 45 years, American Program Bureau has provided speakers of this caliber to events worldwide. It is in this spirit that APB announces the grand opening of the feature documentary Waiting for "Superman," directed by Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim and starring APB speaker Geoffrey Canada. Opening nationwide on October 8th, the film is a searing exploration of the state of the American education system.
SPEAKERS ON EDUCATION: RETHINKING & RESHAPING THE SYSTEM

Moore is a youth advocate, Army combat veteran, and author whose book, The Other Wes Moore, was lauded by Geoffrey Canada as "required reading for anyone who is trying to understand what is happening to young men in our inner cities."
