<p>Wow. Went to a showing of this documentary last night. (if this has been discussed on a CC thread recently forgive me...)</p>

<p>AMERICAN</a> TEACHER: Official Trailer - YouTube</p>

<p>As the mom of a college sophomore S who is revisiting an education major the film made me shocked, sad, appreciative, proud, scared and hopeful all at the same time. </p>

<p>Curious if anyone else has seen it and your thoughts. </p>

<p>(the premise of the film: American Teacher is a feature-length documentary created and produced by The Teacher Salary Project. Following the format of the book Teachers Have It Easy: The Big Sacrifices and Small Salaries of America’s Teachers, the film utilizes a large collection of teacher testimonies and contrasts the demands of the teaching profession alongside interviews with education experts and education reform news from around the country. There are four principal characters in the film whose lives and careers are closely portrayed over the course of several years. Alongside the stories of these four characters is interwoven a mixture of interviews with teachers, students, families, and education leaders, as well as animation conveying startling facts surrounding the teaching profession)</p>
