Tony Danza Goes Back To School - To Teach!

Is he even qualified for this?!

Tony Danza will begin co-teaching a 10th grade English class at Northeast High School in Philadelphia this fall.

But, not for a gratifying career change!

It will part of the new reality series, Teach, on A&E.

Shouldn't they call it Co-Teach?!

"I'm so scared. You have no idea," says the former sitcom star. "I can tap-dance, but I don't know if I can make kids learn yet."

If you want kids to learn, maybe you should have gotten your teaching credentials like everyone else?

He'll have his hands full!!

The school district is full of struggling, low income students, in which only 50% are considered proficient in reading and math.

Mayor Michael Nutter believes that the show would give students new opportunities, including production internships on the show!

Not only will they will be distracted by cameras and mics, but instead of studying, these underprivileged kids can work for free!!!

The mayor says, "I believe that 'Teach' represents a unique opportunity to highlight many of our city's dedicated teachers and administrators, and the talented students they serve."

And for them to get PAID!!!

Pending a decision by the school board, 13 episodes will be shot and $3,500 per episode, plus expenses, will be in their pockets!

"My goal is to really be a good teacher," sayz Danza. "If we can be really real about it and really honest about it and put the kids first and really show what a teacher goes through, it might be something that is a positive."

Positive like an Emmy nomination?!

Doubtful!

Re: Tony Danza Goes Back To School - To Teach!

I'm a recent Philly transplant and whether or not to approve this show was a BIG debate in the papers. From what I understand, Danza has a History Education degree so hopefully he will have something to contribute...but I really think that the Mayor is trying to get more filming going for the City of Phila.Chat Icon

BTW....he does look old as all heck!!Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon
