The Bigger Issue (2015)
THE BIGGER ISSUE goes inside a Grade 7 classroom to the volatile intersection of poverty, violence, mental health, and an education system bursting at the seams. Suzy is a young teacher trying to do her best under the watchful eye of Irene, a principal caught between the needs of the students and the demands of an out-of-touch administration. After a troubling incident with a student, they are forced to confront the parents, Maggie and Jack, a couple trying to do the best for their son under very upsetting circumstances.
It is complex, surprising and intensely funny.
