‘Brian and Donna’s son is nine years old and he’s struggling. That’s what his teacher says. Says he should see a psychologist. But Brian and Donna- recently separated- never liked school, never liked teachers.’

Class follows the journeys of Brian and Donna, two parents called in to a welfare meeting about their son, Jayden. Having been victims of the ‘special’ classes themselves, they worry that the same will happen to their son.

Jayden and Kaylie aren’t interested in the concerns of the grown ups- they just want to know why Mr McCafferty is keeping them behind every night to help with their reading. 
Mr McCafferty becomes unwittingly involved in the lives of his students- often taking one step too far with his duty of care.

Class keeps up with their stories as they unfold, and as they all become increasingly involved in one another’s lives, they come to realise that best intent isn’t always best outcome.
