It was a very good movie. It showed you that when you believe in something and it is for the right, then you go for it risking all costs. It also showed how when you are not in the clique, how people will try to make you look bad.

In these crushing economic times, one of the favorite places political leaders cut the budget is in the area of education...reqiring more of teachers for less $, taking aides out of classrooms and raising class sizes (to save money).again. The crux of the movie...no matter what higher ups say, make education of the students the #1 priorty...not greasing someone's hand or pulling the wool over other's eyes. REMEMBER...ALL CHILDREN ARE GIFTED, NO MATTER THEIR CHALLENGES OR STATION IN LIFE! Today's children are tomorrow's leaders. KUDOS to everyone who made this movie and others similar to it...Holland's Opus, Sister Act II, and recent Hallmark presentations possible.This is a MUST SEE! (every teacher and parent should go) Stand up for your children, your students...our leaders of tomorrow (retired teachers...volunteer for the children's sake). We can ALL make a positive difference in the kid's lives!

Extremely thought-provoking

I took my daughter and 11-year old grandson to see this well-cast movie. This film should be made available for all schools. It will make you mad but it will also get you thinking about the quality of education in your community.

Too one sided

This was the type of Movie when you wanted to stand up and cheer at the end. Although I loved the outcome it was too one sided and portrayed Unions in a bad light. Unions are the backbone of our Country and without them our wages would be barely over minimum. I think tenure needs to be revised to make teachers more accountable and what this movie did was bring a lot of that to the forefront.
