Trailer: 'American Teacher'


The screening of "American Teacher," the documentary produced by Dave Eggers, narrated by Matt Damon, and based on a book co-written by Cleveland's own Dan Moulthrop, screens October 5 at the Capitol Theatre. Sadly, it's a one-time showing for now and tickets are sold out.

That, however, doesn't mean you shouldn't watch the trailer and make a mental note to see the film the next chance you get. The argument here is that schools thrive and children perform better when they have great teachers, and it's hard to attract great teachers in the current construct of American schools, specifically in respect to the compensation and respect offered to the folks chartered with teaching our children. Reviews so far have been positive.
