Wagner Education Policy Studies Association (WEPSA) and the Wagner Economic and Finance Association (WEFA) presents a sneak preview of the Teacher Salary Project, a feature-length documentary film and national outreach campaign that delves into the core of our educational crisis as seen through the eyes and experiences of our nation's teachers. This project is based on the New York Times bestselling book, Teachers Have It Easy by journalist and teacher Daniel Moulthrop, co-founder of the 826 National writing programs Nínive Calegari, and writer Dave Eggers.

The Teacher Salary Project is produced by Eggers and Calegari, and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Vanessa Roth.

Nínive Calegari and Vanessa Roth will screen the documentary, discuss policies surrounding teacher salaries, and take questions.
