It was time to speak up. When LAUSD teacher and playwright Alan Aymie was given his second pink slip from the school district that he had worked in for a decade, and was later "graded" by the LA Times he decided it was time to provide a voice for the teaching professional. While painting a dynamic and powerful portrait of the daily challenges teachers face in LA, Aymie also takes a poignant look at his own experiences of trying to teach his son who was recently assessed with Asperger's Syndrome. A dramatic response to the LA Times' Value Added teacher ratings, A Child Left Behind is a teacher's personal journey of trying to be an effective educator while parenting a special needs child, and learning what it takes to be taught. Written and performed by award-winning playwright/performer Alan Aymie. Directed by Paul Stein, Artistic Director of the Comedy Central Stage in Hollywood.
