Alexander Russo is “horrified and fascinated” by the new plot development on HBO’s Girls. After dropping out of her MFA writing program, Lena Dunham’s character Hannah decides to be a teacher.
The character says she wants to help people. Her friends remind her she’s selfish.
“Those who can’t teach” is “uttered, with an unclear amount of irony,” writes Russo.
Apparently, Hannah gets a job as an English teacher at a private school called St. Justine’s. (Dunham attended St. Anne’s School in Brooklyn.)
Will this be good for the teaching profession? Bad for teaching?
