Abstract:

AMERICAN TEACHER chronicles the stories of four teachers - Erik Benner, Jonathan Dearman, Jamie Fidler, and Rhena Jasey - who live and work in disparate urban and rural areas of the country. The film shows us the experiences of these four young teachers as they recognize the importance of what they do, and how much they love what they do, but ask: can I afford to continue to teach? Explore the need to increase compensation and improve conditions to attract the best college graduates who might otherwise go into law, finance, or other lucrative fields.
