The Learning


Episode Info

"The Learning" chronicles the first-year experiences of four Filipina educators recruited to teach in Baltimore's public school system, where 10 percent of their fellow teachers are also from the Philippines. The documentary begins in their homeland as the women prepare to part from their families and current teaching positions, which pay far less than in America. Once in Baltimore, they face students whose oft-unruly behavior is at odds with what they're accustomed to, and slowly win them over.
