Movies about teachers are a dime a dozen. Every year the moviegoing public is treated to some flick or another about a hard-nosed educator that is just trying to reach these kids. They can range anywhere from “academically astute” to “criminally incompetent,” though we are often meant to be inspired by the courageous actions of these (mostly) fictional characters regardless.
