Teaching as a rite of passage. That's the narrative that drives The First Year, a brilliant and moving little documentary that follows five new teachers through their first year in the Los Angeles public school system. It will leave you in awe at the dedication of some teachers and howling in anger at the insensitivity of some of the folks with whom they work. I say "little" because in the sea of huge, multi-part documentaries of which PBS seems so enamored, The First Year stands out like a small, perfectly sculpted and polished stone.
