Chile's miners teach world hope rarely misplaced

By Eliott C. McLaughlin, CNN

(CNN) - A hero's welcome awaits them when they get to the top, not because they did anything markedly noble - besides defy odds - but because they showed us there is hope even when the worst seems certain.

By this time Wednesday, the historic moment should be long under way. After 69 days beneath the earth, the last of the 33 miners trapped in the San Jose gold and copper mine in Chile should be preparing for their ascent to freedom.

Their survival, many will say, was born of the strength, patience and resilience God instilled in them.

Already, there have been myriad times a higher power was more than a mere specter or matter of faith to the men. Crammed like the canned fish that first sustained them into a space the size of a Manhattan studio apartment, they have expressed a oneness with the Holy Spirit that resonates with Chileans, 87 percent of whom are Christian.

"We 33 miners are walking hand in hand with God," miner Mario Sepulveda reported on August 31, about 26 days after the mine collapsed and nine days after the world first learned they were alive.

Another 42 days have passed since that profession of faith. Each day has doubtless required similar, sustaining thoughts.

Waiting for Superman

Posted: 03:09 PM ET

The following is an essay featured in the companion book to the documentary, from Lesley Chilcott, the producer for the film “Waiting for Superman.”

I’m not a parent, and yet I’ve felt like one ever since I started making Waiting for “Superman.”  Until now, I don’t think I’ve read sixteen books on any single subject ever, to say nothing of hundreds of scholarly studies, research reports, articles, interviews, speeches, and blog postings.   Practically everyone who has attended school has an opinion about what is right and (more important) what is wrong with our educational system.

But no matter how many reports you read or statistics you study, they all fade into the background once you begin spending time with families who are wrestling with the real-world problems that underlie all the arguments—in many cases, families desperately trying to do everything they can to get their child into the one good school in their neighborhood.

We filmed many families over the course of many months and after a short time the kids whose stories we tell in the film became, in effect, “our kids.”  I woke up with them and, with our cameras rolling, saw them go through their morning routines—Emily brushing her teeth, Francisco tucking in his oversized white shirt, and Daisy stuffing her notebooks into the extra large backpack she managed to hoist and carry.  The same routine happens every morning in every neighborhood in every city and, like “our kids,” not enough kids are heading off to great schools.

One Monday morning while we were deeply immersed in rearranging colored index cards containing various story ideas on the wall in our edit bay, Davis came into the production office with an amazing idea.  He’d just read an op-ed piece by New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman about a local SEED school and the lottery they used to select students for the coming year.  The SEED schools are the only urban public boarding schools in the country, designed to provide underserved kids with a nurturing round-the-clock atmosphere.  Free from distractions that might exist at home, SEED students live on campus starting in the fifth grade and learn life skills in addition to academic ones.
