That is the astonishing story told by the new documentary The Hobart Shakespeareans, which discovers how one man's uncommon commitment and resourcefulness have opened up worlds of opportunity for his disadvantaged students and perhaps have demonstrated a way forward for America's beleaguered public education system.

Comments about PBS P.O.V.: The Hobart Shakespeareans DVD:

This movie is eye opening. Even in a poorly funded area, this teacher takes time out of his schedule to open the eyes of children to works like Shakespeare.

A Delight, not only for Shakespeareans!

Comments about PBS P.O.V.: The Hobart Shakespeareans DVD:

As a former college English instructor, I was moved to tears by this stunning documentary, which follows a 5th grade teacher in Southern California, working with disadvantaged students. His attitude, his teaching techniques, and the success of his efforts are inspiring and astonishing. Watching these mostly Hispanic and Asian youngsters (all of them from violent, drug-crippled neighborhoods) come to life, blooming like beautiful flowers, should be an inspiration to everyone who loves kids and is concerned about the state of education in the US. To top it all off, the final class project, a performance of Hamlet, is amazing. These child actors say their lines with incredible understanding. Great teachers can work wonders, and this teacher is undeniably great.
Watch this documentary, and lift your heart, your hopes, and your spirit.
