TEACH, Teachers are Talking, Is the Nation Listening? brings an important perspective to the national education debate that is currently being dominated by a corporate led agenda to privatize and profitize education and blame teachers for everything that is wrong with education in this country. This movie takes on many questions about No Child Left Behind, high stakes testing, unequal distribution of education resources, and schools dominated by test scores and data driven curriculum instead of providing an education that is dynamic, creative, exciting, and joyful. As the filmmakers state in the movie, "Every day in the media we hear from the businesses, thinktankers, politicians, and administrators, this movie is about those who don't usually get heard."

TEACH examines the behind the scenes forces that are attacking teachers and their unions, promoting charter schools as the solution, and standardized testing as the primary determinant of student and teacher value. The film interviewed over 40 teachers from many school districts including Boston, Brooklyn, NY, Madison, WI, Key West, FL, North Conway, NH, Cambridge, MA, Newton, MA, Lincoln-Sudbury,MA, and others. Additional parts of the movie include legislative hearings, speeches, and debates between union and school officials, various public hearings about school closings, and various teacher rallies.
