quite watchable, but the teaching & learning processes were too simplified
10 July 2012 | by rightwingisevilSee all my reviews

i don't want to write one more review other than quote&unquote the only review from amazon.com. i've tried to find this film in 2012 releases but could never find anything until i googled it and found the following very more than enough good review.

"STAND AND DELIVER July 7, 2012 By Michael Ledo TOP 500 REVIEWER

This film is the African-American version of "Stand and Deliver." This is a re-release of the 2007 film "City Teacher." Jeff Solomon (Jonathan Sale) is a parole officer who is asked to teach a class of 12 troubled unruly teens how to read. He has to buck the teaching system as well as having to gain the trust and respect of his class, all who have criminal records.

Jeff is white and Jewish. His wife Marsha (Heather Tom) leaves him because she wants him to be in a job that makes more money. Jeff is also unusual in that he was adopted and raised by African-American parents in a far fetched story. He gets advice from his dad (Glynn Turman) who was also a teacher. Meanwhile there are robberies going on in the neighborhood.
