Saw the Movie years ago and what I remember was "Love".
Previous comment wrote they remember one scene...
"My favorite part is when the girl told Marva I hate you then Marva said I love you." I THINK that is what the difference was between Marva Collins and her school and the Public School system. In her own school she was able to give those "classified retarded" kids the Love she could not give them in the Public school system.
That situation is obviously worse today. I heard about one Public School employee, a middle aged gentleman, who was fired for giving a female student an encouraging hug in the hallway between classes.
So, saying "I Love You" to a student in the Public School system today would surely result in the same thing, a termination.
