Why did Center Maryland agree to work with KIPP: Baltimore as a media sponsor for the Baltimore advance screening of Waiting for Superman?

Yes, the powerful documentary provides an insightful look at America's schools. But KIPP: Baltimore and its amazing successes are also worthy of support.

Not familiar with the KIPP model?

Here's an article from USA Today, KIPP shown as urban triumph.

Check out how Forbes magazine recognized these revolutionary educators involved in KIPP's program.

And, on a more local level, WJZ in Baltimore profiled the charter school's first graduating class last spring.

After learning more about KIPP, it's easy to understand why Center Maryland is proud to join KIPP: Baltimore as a media sponsor of the advance screening.

Join KIPP on Thursday, Sept. 23rd at 5:30 p.m. for a reception at the Legg Mason Tower at Harbor East, prior to the 7 p.m. showing of the film at the Landmark Theater. (Here’s a link to the invitation, and here’s a link to purchase tickets to the event.)

Proceeds from the event will benefit KIPP: Baltimore, which operates one of the city’s most successful middle schools.

Since Center Maryland launched at the start of this year, promoting the success of public charter schools in Maryland has been one of our priorities. So over the next two weeks, Center Maryland will continue to share information about this amazing film, and we’ll continue to concentrate on how our state’s education system can continue to improve through the competition and innovative ideas available from charter schools.

We urge all of our regular readers to consider joining this important event for quality public education in Baltimore. Buy a ticket now.

We hope to see you there!
