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.
