Tomorrow is the Baltimore advance screening of Waiting for "Superman."

From William McGurn in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal:

Center Maryland is proud to work with KIPP: Baltimore as a media sponsor of the Baltimore advance screening of Waiting for "Superman".

Join KIPP on Thursday, Sept. 23rd (tomorrow) 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!
