'American Teacher' explores realities of today's educators

Submitted By Jane Bark

The Tri-City Documentaries Second Saturday Series presents "American Teacher" on May 12 at First Christian Church in Fremont. This is the first of two films on K-12 education, comparing aspects of the American system with that of Finland, which often ranks among the best in the world. The second film will be June 9.

Chronicling the stories of four teachers in different areas of the country, "American Teacher" reveals the frustrating realities of today's educators, the difficulty of attracting talented new teachers and why so many of our best teachers choose to leave the profession altogether.
