Cory Finley (Thoroughbreds) directs this dark comic take on the true story of Frank Tassone, superintendent of the Roslyn, NY schools, whose ambition to make Roslyn the #1-ranked school district makes him a prime target for an investigation by the high school newspaper. BAD EDUCATION premiered at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival, and aired exclusively on HBO in 2020.

Abels’ orchestral score is an homage to great classical composers including Handel, Wagner and Beethoven, but also includes starkly Minimalist cues driven primarily by percussion.
