The Rubber Room
The rubber room in the NYC public school district is where they send teachers who get in trouble, but not enough to fire them. It's also the subject of a new documentary that looks pretty interesting and is currently trying to amass funding.
It's like purgatory for teachers. Kind of like how high school is hell for teenagers.
