Rick Kogan talks with Myra Richardson, whose documentary Dying to Teach: The Killing of Mary Eve Thorson chronicles the death of teacher Mary Eve Thorson, who took her own life in the wake of harassment at the hands of school administrators and educators.  The film’s goal is to open up the discussion of the “quiet problem” in the education field: bullying of teachers by their own peers.
