This documentary tells the collective story of those closest to the issues in the educational system — the 3.2 million teachers who spend every day in classrooms across the country. Narrated by Matt Damon and based on The New York Times bestselling book, “Teachers Have It Easy: The Big Sacrifices and Small Salaries of America’s Teachers,” the film balances the personal stories of teachers with startling statistics and analysis by policy experts, including the factors that cause many teachers to leave the profession. “You’ll watch it and want to call your favorite teacher from grade school and thank them all over again.” — The Huffington Post.
