Is education a business? Supported by an all-star cast we turn to Chalk N Duster to educate our-selves in this important story about the commercialisation of the Indian private education system.

Through sheer selflessness and passion, tranquility, good grades and love for students has been maintained by teachers at Kantaben High School. But an ominous cloud looms when the school is visited by a businessman with a bad attitude. When the decision is made to dismiss Vidya, one of the school’s most senior teachers, the school face an unsightly battle with new evil headmaster, Kamini Gupta who’s greedy intentions dominate her every action. Jyoti and her fellow teachers now fight for justice against the business robots who have plagued the peace at their beloved school.
