We were given the opportunity to see this movie at this year’s Global Forum in Washington DC. When you sit there and watch a film like this you ask yourself “is this only relevant to American Teachers”?
The simple answer is NO.
This is a worldwide challenge for governments and politicians to recognise the importance and value Teachers bring to all of our countries, cities and local communities but most importantly TO OUR CHILDREN!! Developing engaged, creative, skilled and contributing citizens is how society grows and prospers and no one does that more on a day to day basis than our Teachers. Most students spend more time at school than they do at home. Even in a nurturing home environment, Teachers help shape our collective future and we all know not every home provides that “nurturing environment”. I only hope they will release it globally so we can get the conversation going locally.
