S44 E1: "What kind of adult just stands there...?"

"I’m a white chick who has never had the luxury of winning over a class full of Black and Latino kids." That's how Laurie, a public high school teacher, humorously describes her situation. As a fight breaks out between two students, she is caught on camera hitting one of the kids with a broom. Actor Tasha Lawrence talks about her character and the unique perspective she brings to this tense drama.
