Good case study, could be used in education courses
The story here is over simplified, "progressive" vs. "traditional" teaching methods, but this movie is really more than its story. What's interesting here are the pedagogical techniques introduced by this principal as well as his apparent inability to sense "trouble" just around the corner. I was disappointed not to find this on vhs or dvd because I would love to use it in my educational leadership classes. It is quite thought provoking and lends itself well to class discussions.
