THE FILM SERIES

The series follows one aspiring educator (Carlos) and one considering leaving the field (Julia), as they travel the country and struggle with the realities of the education profession. ​By engaging with business leaders, students, teachers, policymakers, community members, and beyond, the series aims to spark national conversations about complex issues in education in order to create positive, meaningful change.

The film series is designed to bridge the gap, resulting from a lack of understanding and connection, between those who work in education and those who don't. The goal is to identify those things that contribute to a thriving educator workforce and those that detract. What are the conditions that would make Julia want to return to the classroom? What will Carlos need to see and hear to keep him on the path to entering the field? The film series will spark conversations intended to reignite society’s appreciation for teachers and shape policies resulting in a more attractive and sustainable profession.

THE FILM SERIES IS DESIGNED TO EXPLORE THE EVER WIDENING GULF BETWEEN THE EXPERIENCES OF THOSE WHO WORK IN EDUCATION, AND THE PERCEPTIONS OF THOSE  OUTSIDE.
