In the U.S., 60% of its teachers are expected to retire in the next decade. Following up his earlier examinations of the American education system – Waiting for Superman and The First Year – director Davis Guggenheim takes his cameras back to school for this inspiring look at what makes a great teacher. Hosted by Queen Latifah, the program follows four teachers in different schools and charts the challenges and triumphs they face in the effort to make a difference in the lives of their students.
