Disclaimer: The messages portrayed in the film Waiting for "Superman" do not necessarily represent the views of Kansas Mentors. We are promoting every young person's right to achieve their full potential. Education is an important part of that process. We do not have an opinion on the debate of charter schools versus public schools or other issues related to the U.S. public education system. We can, however, discuss the proven merits of mentoring as a whole and as an intervention that helps keep young people in school.
