This is a documentary about 2 trained and former corporate architects who devise a plan to educate high school students in a rural area to design and build their own projects, beginning with a simple cornhole game and ending with a place for a farmer's market. These students learned far more than they probably would have learned otherwise (another lecture, read, essay, test... all based on mere regurgitation of material), but the teachers were paid NOTHING (and if they had been paid (approx. $40k), it would have been at about half of what normal teachers are paid (approx. $85k). It seems that the the American secondary system has some major flaws in it (I don't think it would have been any different in Ontario, though). Really, their ought to be more teachers like those two, more classes like they taught, and less self-interested bureaucracy.
