Education section launched in The Huffington Post
| Oct 07, 2010
"With the White House pushing its Race to the Top initiative, and Davis Guggenheim's Waiting for Superman sparking a national conversation about both the problems plaguing America's schools and the innovative solutions being proposed and implemented all across the country, America is having an Education Moment," according to Arianna Huffington, of the Huffington Post, an online newspaper.
"This spring, as I was delving into America's troubled education system for my book (nothing is quickening our slide into Third World status faster than our resounding failure to properly educate our children), Davis Guggenheim gave me an early look at his film. I was deeply moved and saw that by personalizing the crisis (and being willing to point fingers and name names), Superman was going to get people talking. And thinking. And, hopefully, working -- finally -- to reform the broken system.
"We wanted to be part of that discussion, and began working on creating a new section devoted to the issue. The result, HuffPost Education launches today (October 4). HuffPost Education is designed to be a hub for education news and trends -- and will be home to a spirited, ongoing conversation about what's gone wrong with America's schools, and what needs to be done to fix them."
