All Back to School w/t (6 x 60′) – Features children aged between 9-12 years old, most of whom are on the brink of permanent exclusion from school. Mr Drew, a teacher who has an outstanding track record for turning around unruly children, will work with his team of specialists to help settling the kids into their own schools and allow them to benefit from the best possible education.
However, the children’s behaviour won’t be the only thing put under the microscope – their parents will also be going back to the classroom, where they will witness their child’s bad behaviour first hand as well as having to address their own parenting skills.
The series follows the kids and their parents as they spend time at a residential summer school run by Mr Drew. Looking at how the families function before, during and after their stay at the summer school, it will be compelling and inspiring as Mr Drew strives to deliver dramatic results and help powerless parents take control of their children again.
