In The Learning, four Filipina women reluctantly leave their families and schools to come to America to teach in Baltimore. They are hoping that the increased salary will help improve the lives of their families back in the Philippines. This beautiful film follows these teachers as they take their place on the frontline of the No Child Left Behind Act, and chronicles the sacrifices they make in order to maintain the long-distance relationships with their own families.
