Why should you buy a ticket to the Baltimore advance screening of Waiting for Superman and support the efforts of KIPP: Baltimore?

KIPP: Baltimore operates one of the city’s most successful middle schools, and its charter school model has been successful in urban centers across the nation. Center Maryland is working with KIPP as a media sponsor for next week's advance screening of the documentary.

Here's an article from BusinessWeek on KIPP's adapation of corporate motivational techniques to boost student achievement.

And here's an article from Time Magazine on the importance of classroom time for student success, and how KIPP expands the time that students spend learning above and beyond the traditional school calendar.

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 event.

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.)

Want to learn more? Here's a trailer of the film.

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!
