Think the salaries of pro football players and teachers should be switched? Me, too. There's no question that teachers play a huge role in our kids' lives and success, but American teachers are so underpaid that nearly two-thirds have to work a second job in order to make ends meet. Narrated by Matt Damon, this documentary chronicles the stories of four teachers in different parts of the country, revealing frustrating realities and delving into why so many great teachers end up leaving the profession. Can we re-value teaching and turn it into a prestigious, financially attractive, and desirable profession? It's not too late to try.
