"Finding Superman" is a collection of easy-to-understand essays written in response to the documentary "Waiting for Superman." The authors each take a critical view of the film and add broader context that questions whether charter schools are really the panacea that their proponents promise. The authors diverge in some places but together provide a well-rounded understanding of the charter school debate. At just over 100 pages long, "Finding Superman" is an essential primer.
