Sociology
Sociology

The Dutch government is calling on schools to pay more attention to teaching 'better citizenship'. But how do you do that?

This is a documentary about sociology teacher Daan's first six months of teaching. Through trial and error, he learns how far removed theory is from day-to-day lived experience. After finishing his degree in sociology in August 2015, Daan starts his career as a high school teacher who produces thinking citizens that feel responsible for their community. But the further into the semester, the more he is confronted with reality.

Will Daan succeed in finding his own way of teaching and will his students get the message?
