What do you think? A reality show about teaching high school sounds interesting (non-scripted moments), but I'm worried that it's going to show one of two things:

1. Anyone can teach! It's easy! Even Tony Danza can do it!
2. Teaching is hard and frustrating, but it's worth it because of the difference you make with kids (a la Freedom Writers).

It sounds like the intent is to portray it pretty realistically. However, sad to say, but I'd guess that no matter how realistic it is, those with their minds made up and closed won't learn much. Some will say it's scripted and edited to show a specific agenda or message.
