Trivia:
Toby says that Josephine McGarry had been Superintendent of the Atlanta Public Schools, which had shown "some of the highest standardized test scores in the nation". Comparing primary and secondary school test score across states is somewhat difficult, as states have widely varying testing systems. However, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) scores for 1995-96 shows Georgia in 50th place out of 51 districts (50 states plus District of Columbia). In 2000-2001 (this aired in 2000), Georgia had risen all the way to 49th. 1999 also saw the appointment of Dr. Beverly Hall as APD Superintendent. Hall was indicted in 2013 in a high-profile investigation into cheating in the APDF on standardized tests.See more »
Goofs:
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): Toby places Jamestown in the 16th century, when in fact it was founded in the 17th (1607).See more »
