Great Special
14 March 2012 | by kathy_kesterSee all my reviews

I was glad to read reviews of this movie. I remembered it as a kid and remembered the phrase ever since. I am now a teacher and wish that their were after school specials to help kids to cope with today's issues. I couldn't wait to get home to watch when the specials were airing. Character education is something that seems to get cut when budgets are cut. I think that shows like this would be helpful to kids who are going through tough times in their lives. I was a latchkey kid, meaning that my parents worked in a big city while I went to school in a small rural 30 miles away. These specials really helped me when I could have been getting into trouble being all alone.
