Abbott Elementary: Plot and Cast
The show is summarised by deadline as follows:
“In Abbott Elementary, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers — and a slightly tone-deaf principal — are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children.”
Thus we can see that the show is a commentary on the flaws of American school system. It is a sitcom, so it is best that viewers check out the show for themselves. If they do not know, too many plot details, they can enjoy the surprises that come their way!
