          This video marks our first collaboration with takepart.com and our second with Participant Media and director Davis Guggenheim (we worked on a little Oscar winning documentary he directed called, “An Inconvenient Truth”). All backslapping and name tossing aside, this animation is for a startling documentary called, “Waiting For ‘Superman’” that highlights some very serious issues in America today and it made us feel good to make it.

                On May 19, 2011, The Grassroots Education Movement premiered a new documentary, written and directed by New York City public school teachers and parents, created in response to Davis Guggenheim’s highly misleading film. Waiting for "Superman" would have audiences believe that free-market competition, standardized tests, destroying teacher unions, and the proliferation of charter schools are just what this country needs to create great public schools. The Inconvenient Truth Behind Waiting For "Superman" highlights the real-life experiences of public school parents, students and educators to show how these so-called reforms are actually hurting public education. The film discusses the kinds of real reform – inside schools and in our society as a whole – that we urgently need to genuinely transform education in this country. Since the official premiere of GEM's film at the Assembly Hall of The Riverside Church in Harlem on May 19, 2011 featuring historian Diane Ravitch as our honored guest, our free offer of the DVD and permission to copy and distribute copies of the film have produced an estimated 15,000 copies in circulation. Requests have come in from all 50 states and 6 continents. Screenings have been set up by unions, parent groups, college professors and libraries all over the nation, in India, Turkey, England, New Zealand and Australia. Demand has been so great, we are currently working on a Spanish language version of the 67 minute film. For more information about the film, visit: http://theinconvenienttruthbehindwaitingforsuperman.com/ To order an “official” free dvd with the Real Reform Studio logo go to: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?pli=1&formkey=dF96cXlyaUE0NlBDRlJxNTZ2VFFkVGc6MQ#gid=0
