Hawaii Education Matters, a public schools advocacy group, will give away 50 tickets to educators for a private Sunday screening of "Waiting for Superman."

The film looks at the nation's failing public education system and how charter schools are helping kids succeed.

 

Maya Soetoro-Ng, an educator and President Obama's sister, will speak before the showing.

 

The free tickets are available to the first 50 educators who apply at hawaiieducationmatters.org.

 

Others interested in attending the screening should contact Hawaii Education Matters by e-mail at anndavis@hawaiieducationmatters.org.

 

The screening will be at Kahala Theaters on Sunday, starting at 10:50 a.m.
