"

What should schools do when they are losing so many teachers?

On Teach First student Kat’s first day at Hurstville Community College, Nicky Morgan announces forced academisation for all state schools. Kat is ready for the picket line but her attempts to join the NUT are met with contempt by union stalwart Janine. The head teacher is invisible and the staff are more concerned about losing their staff room, disappearing books and a History teacher who hasn’t been seen for weeks.

A powerful and humorous look at an education system buckling under government cuts and targets. A story of protest and the teachers who choose to fight back.
