Documentary Screening & Discussion, Mar 1, 2017

Wednesday, March 1, 2017 (All day)

The documentary titled “Waiting for Superman” will be screened for attendees. “The film follows a handful of promising children through a system that inhibits, rather than encourages, academic growth. It undertakes an exhaustive review of public education, surveying ‘drop-out factories’ and ‘academic sinkholes’, methodically dissecting the system and its seemingly intractable problems.” (Source: IMDB)

This will be followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Mariam Chughtai, Doctorate in Education, Harvard University to discuss the content’s application to Pakistan’s context.
