It was a true-life lesson in corruption. Dr. Frank Tassone was a smooth, charismatic Superintendent whose leadership guided Roslyn High School to the highest levels of education. He also happened to be part of an $11 million embezzling scheme that rocked the upscale Long Island town. Hugh Jackman stars as Tassone with Allison Janney as his business manager and colleague in crime as they coordinated the biggest public-school embezzlement in American history--which would be uncovered by a tenacious young reporter with the high-school newspaper. Co-starring Ray Romano and Geraldine Viswanathan. Directed by Cory Finley; written by Mike Makowsky who was a student at Roslyn during the scandal; based on the New York magazine article "The Bad Superintendent" by Robert Kolker.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Anchored by an outstanding Hugh Jackman, Bad Education finds absurd laughs -- and a worthy message -- in the aftermath of a real-life scandal.
Excellent performances make tepid subject exciting.
