Teacher Mister Bachmann may be 65 years of age, but he’s still brimming with energy. He is an inspiration to his year 8 pupils, who come from twelve different countries; he manages to get the children to engage with one another and discusses their personal problems, their families and German history.
If you’ve seen the award-winning documentary Herr Bachmann und seine Klasse (Jury Award at the Berlin film festival), you’ll know that good education stands or falls with the personal commitment of the teacher.
