As the debate over America's schools rages on, one thing everyone agrees on is the need for great teachers.  While research proves that teachers are the most important school factor in a child's success, American Teacher reveals the frustrations facing today's educators: the difficulty of retaining talented new teachers and why many of the best teachers are forced to leave the profession altogether.  Can we reform teaching in the U.S. and turn it into a prestigious, financially attractive and competitive profession? 

"A film about education that gets it exactly right." - The Washington Post


"American Teacher raises important questions about America's teachers. It should spark a much-needed conversation." -Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
