In a similar vein, I also liked Dangerous Minds, starring Michelle Pfeiffer, based on the real life story of LouAnne Johnson. I personally know a Filipina teacher who's teaching at a school like this in NY, and she has been an inspiration and encouragement to her students, also. It's scary how these kids grown up in their drive-by shooting and drug-riddled neighborhoods, in single- or no-parent families.
My choice for this week? Legally Blonde. Don't laugh.
