I have been meaning to post about Chalk the movie that we saw over New Year's. It is amazing for someone who has so many teachers in her life! Morgan Spurlock (of Supersize Me) produced it. The website is chalkthefilm.com. It is funny, its not a documentary - but brings to light some fun school stuff - and makes some points that I know are true.
Here is what the website said:
In the 'doc' comedy style of "The Office" and "Best in Show", CHALK pulls you into the frenetic and awkwardly painful journey of three novice teachers as they navigate one memorable school year. Director Mike Akel provides a rare and realistic teacher's perspectve into the absurd, provocative and occasionally volatile world of public education. In a country where 50% of teachers quit within the first three years, CHALK delivers an enormous dose of heart, hilarity, and hope for America's most important institution.
