One of the most heated political issues of the day is the American education system. Our children are falling behind on a global scale and while everyone has criticisms, very few have workable solutions. Teach for America takes this controversial topic and turns it into a compelling drama about a young idealist who thinks she can make a difference in a troubled urban school. Instead, she lands in the crossfire among discouraged students, angry adults, and overburdened administrators. Politics, prejudice, and sex collide in this story of good intentions gone wrong. Hilarious and heartbreaking, Teach for America puts you on the front lines of our nation's battle over education. Learn More
