If a couple of parents gang up together to get rid of a teacher who "obviously" is bad for their kids ... does the teacher in question even have a fighting chance? This movie will answer that ... at least for this particular case. But it's not only parents versus teacher, it's also parents against each other.
It also depicts a couple of issues parents and teachers have to deal with in our society at this point. Maybe it'd be a touch better if it focused on that. And "Carnage" (also a theatre play like this one) is far better, though it concentrates only on parents, but some issues are the same here. The acting is nice and the story moves along nicely, especially if you consider the "restrictions" it has to deal with
