Description: What helps teachers excel in their classrooms? What conditions can schools create to attract the best people to the teaching profession and retain them? What resources and support do they need to make the greatest positive impact on the education of their students?

In a special one-hour virtual event on May 13 from 3-4pm ET, Detroit Public TV will screen this important documentary and then offer a panel discussion on the issues raised in the film, moderated by Sarah Rand of REL Midwest.
