NEW ENGLAND DOCUMENTARY FILM PREMIER OF TEACH, TEACHERS ARE TALKING, IS THE NATION LISTENING ON THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2011

BOSTON, October 11, 2011.      TEACH, Teachers are Talking. Is the Nation Listening, is having its New England Premier on Thursday October 13, 6:30 PM. The film by Boston public school teachers Robert Lamothe and Yvonne Lamothe, is a documentary that features conversations about the art of teaching and learning by teachers themselves. Each day we hear about teaching and teachers through the eyes of administrators, politicians, and business leaders. Seldom is voice given to those dedicated and experienced teachers who work in our public schools.

This documentary hopes to give dignity and appreciation to the passion, commitment and insight of those who make the choice to devote their lives to educating our nation's children. It 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. We have 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.
The 6:30 screening will be preceded by an informal meeting with the filmmakers and jazz by Different Shades Trio Plus One. Members of the press are invited.
