Immense faith of a special education teacher in the abilities of his students realize a dream that remains a dream for quite a many.

A special ed teacher that believes his kids should have the opportunity to reach for the stars.
Based on a true story, I loved the movie. While this was a movie and they condensed the story, it was well told. The struggles that these children face every day was addressed. How often they are misunderstood and picked on because they are different. They do have to rise above the stupidity and prejudice. Often they are expected to be the bigger person. Also it did show how having just one person behind you to believe when everyone else is telling your not enough ...Reaching for the stars is possible. Another story of how they are different and not less. Sometimes a movie can be a life lesson and I think this is just that. As a paraprofessional in a junior high, I would recommend showing this to our students in all classes; AP as well as Special Ed.
