MY DEAR MISS SCHILDT is the story of a primary school teacher and her pupils before everything changes for them – before she goes into retirement, and before the children move on to secondary school education. Their final class trip before the summer holidays takes them to a farm. Surrounded by nature, far away from the classroom, the children reveal their impressions from the past four years spent together. At the same time, their teacher reflects on her forty years of working in schools, while also taking us on a brief trip through the history of German education The stories begin to merge, and are linked by the voice of Jean-Jacques Rousseau. The philosopher (embodied by a teddy bear) quotes from his book 'Emile or Treatise on Education' on education theory in Germany, England and several Scandinavian countries.
