'Testing Teachers' follows six first time teachers from 'Teach for Australia', an ambitious program that places Australia's brightest minds in schools serving low socioeconomic communities, where many students are falling behind. Six teachers, three schools, one aim: To make a difference in young people's lives. When some of Australia's brightest minds enter the classroom as first time teachers, can they make a difference in schools that face the greatest challenges? It's the first day of high school for a special group of new teachers, as they set foot in some of the country's most challenging classrooms for the very first time. Former FIFO geologist Stephanie and Arts-Law graduate Sasha are teaching at Southern River College on the working-class fringe of Perth. Determined to get off to a good start, the defiant behaviour of their students is a rude awakening and it's not long before their classes unravel.
