Program Abstract: "Education in China is run by the State. Teachers are public employees. National finances will not cover the countryside due to teacher shortages. Villages invite teachers and pay them, creating a considerable difference in salary and welfare in the two teaching environments. The Jieling Primary School is in a small village and wants more than anything else to get national financing. With the help of a dedicated young teacher, Zhang Yingzi, this dream is accomplished. She enhances the lives of all teachers there. This is a story of dedication and truth that can only be found in loving what you do."
