Just in time for back-to-school, the two-hour special Teach, which looks at the American education system through the eyes of teachers, will premiere at 8 PM September 6 on CBS. Directed by Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim (An Inconvenient Truth), the documentary asks the question, “What does it take to be a teacher?” and traces a year inside the classrooms of a fourth-grade teacher and a high school algebra teacher in Denver, a middle school math educator in Kuna, Idaho, and an AP history teacher in Los Angeles. “We all have had a teacher who’s shaped us, inspired us, even scared us, and who we can credit with having empowered us to become who we are today,” said Jack Sussman, EVP Specials, Music and Live Events at CBS Entertainment. “This special celebrates those educators who, despite many hurdles and obstacles, aspire to bring inspiration to their students to succeed.” The special — Guggenheim’s third education-themed docu after The First Year and the DGA-winning Waiting For Superman — is produced by Little Room and presented by Participant Media and Pivot TV.
