    This documentary briefly focuses on the complexities of the public education system. Through a series of interviews, four distinctive educators (ranging across the country) discuss the 'ups and downs' in their careers while giving insight into their own personal lives in and outside the world of teaching. This film gives an interesting perspective upon the history and future of public education. Narrated by Matt Damon (whom also contributed narration to Inside Job and Running the Sahara). Given the context of this film, it's definitely worthy.

    Just awesome. Powerful without being a total downer but very emotional. These people love what they do and you feel their frustration.
