Ben Blum-Smith submits the quintessential teacher-review of Waiting for Superman:
Where did you think great teachers come from? That they spring fully formed from the head of Zeus? Just about everybody whoâ€™s an accomplished teacher used to be an ineffective teacher, and as the maker of a documentary about first year teachers, Iâ€™m totally confused that you donâ€™t seem to understand this. If you want to talk about great teachers, but donâ€™t have anything to say about the conditions under which teachers become great, you are at a different stadium than where the game is happening.
