A new lesson for ‘Teacher’

Baldwins learn from McCourt's story

Howard and Karen Baldwin are developing a feature version of Frank McCourt’s bestselling memoir “Teacher Man” with Ron Bass. Bass will adapt the tome, which details McCourt’s 30-year career teaching English and creative writing in New York’s public school system, beginning in 1958. Bass said the feature version will focus on the changes in the teacher’s character over several decades, as opposed to his 1995 screenplay “Dangerous Minds,” which focused on a single class over a school year.
