Class Act

2006

This documentary about declining funding for public school arts programs focuses on late Miami High School drama teacher Jay W. Jensen. While there, he directed 300 plays and musicals, inspiring students like Mickey Rourke and Andy Garcia. His achievements are juxtaposed with the decline of funding for arts classes and the rise of standardized testing. The 70-something Jensen goes about his job, intercut with testimonials from ex-students and portraits of other heroic arts teachers.
