Kids need good teachers. It's something people know in their gut, but it's only recently that researchers have begun developing ways to measure the quality of teachers. What they're learning is shaking up schools and leading education reformers to call for radical changes in the way teachers are trained and evaluated - and the way they are hired and fired too. This documentary will take us to some of the nation's poorest schools to understand why teacher quality is fast becoming the next frontier in the fight to equalize educational opportunity in the United States.
