- There are great public and private schools scattered all over the USA, but they do not routinely expand on a massive scale as they do in other fields. If you build a better way to teach math—or history, or English—the world does not beat a path to your door.
In School, inc, veteran documentary filmmakers Patrick Prentice and Tim Baney team up with education expert Andrew Coulson to search for answers to that question.
- The series, and the book and website to be paired with it, will expose audiences to unfamiliar and sometimes startling realities: the fate of Jaime Escalante after the release of Stand and Deliver; Korean teachers who makes millions a year; Indian schools that charge $4 a month; current U.S. efforts to replicate educational excellence; and most importantly: corners of the globe—from Chile to Sweden—in which top k-12 teachers and schools have already begun to “scale-up,” reaching large and ever-growing numbers of students.
- School, inc., takes viewers on a personal journey led by an expert passionate about his field. From its surprising twists to its beautiful visuals, the series will both edify and entertain—with each episode teasing the one that follows, leaving viewers eager to tune in again to find out where they’ll be taken next.
