Summary Winner of numerous festival awards including the prestigious Peabody, this powerful and moving film is a “must-see” for anyone who is, or has ever thought of, becoming a parent or teacher. The film chronicles the first year of five young teachers as they fight the real fight: educating our children, one child at a time. From acclaimed filmmaker Davis Guggenheim, THE FIRST YEAR shows the human side of the story, revealing all the determination and commitment it takes to survive in America's toughest schools. From kindergarten teacher Maurice, who refuses to give up as he fights to help a boy with speech problems, to Geneviève, who “wanted to teach the kids no one else wanted to teach,” the men, women, and children profiled in this film are sure to inspire and provoke debate. Intense and emotional, THE FIRST YEAR cuts through the education rhetoric and reminds us what is real: the powerful relationship between teacher and student.
