 I would almost say it’s the reverse of “Elite.” Here we are in a school again but focus on the adult world. I think it’s a less talked about topic, students’ harassment of teachers. We are always dealing with bullying between students, and yet many teachers can tell you about when they feeling attacked by students and being afraid of even going to class. That is terrifying when someone tells it in the first person. So, I wanted to talk about that, the arrival of a young teacher in a place where she is received with hostility, without knowing why. That leads her to investigate what is happening.
