The revolution may not be televised; the German class will be.

"Occasionally I have to chew a kid out who's acting up in class, which is not good to do on public airwaves," says Herr Nelson. "As a result, I've had people come up to me in coffeeshops and tell me that I'm being too hard on the kids. Parents sometimes watch as well, and they all want to give me their opinions. It's at times like that when I really wish I had my own classroom with a closed door so everyone with a TV couldn't scrutinize my teaching style."
