    Luke James...

    I did not like it too much.

    We need a teacher and student themed
    screenplay or movie
    that will send shockwaves
    in those schools...

    Really, something that will get
    the teachers to wake up
    and work harder...

    A script or a movie
    that will force the teachers
    to connect with the students
    on a respectful level.

    This is the reason why there
    is gangs and violence in school....

    Teachers are not working
    hard enough to connect with the students.

    Teachers got to talk to students about
    things the students want to talk about.

    Don't teach them about manners and violins
    and safe sex and Geography -- when they don't want to hear about that.

    I think most teachers should get
    re-trained by ww.mtv.com

    Hey Luke James

    You should of seen my report cards.
    And the complaints filed against
    by my pencil neck principal.

    If I could find them -- maybe I'll post them via
    a scan pdf.

    Now you know what kind of
    scripts I write.

    We need a revolution.

    There's too much violence in schools.

    We need a movie that help the students.

    Cheers.

    I had this maths teacher... his name was Mr Payne... everytime we would have a test, we would have to write our teachers name on the test paper... but I would always have to double-check with him his name wasn't spelt P-A-I-N...

    I wasn't his most favourite student... :rolleyes:

    Oh, well done, John B. Karate Kid.

    I don't know if it fits in this category, but The Mighty Ducks movies were great movies. More mentorship... but a mutually beneficial relationship.

    Teach them to fly, Gordan!

    And when the roosters are crowing and cows are spinning circles in the pasture... ducks fly together!
    And when everyone said it can't be done... ducks... fly together!

    The best was "TEACHERS". Nick Nolte, etc...

    Now Ben's list of "Worst" should actually be "Best"
    Mr. Holland's Opus was brilliant.
    To Sir, With Love
    Dead Poet's Society
    Up the Down Staircase
    Lean On Me

    Ben, I really don't get you.
    All these stated above are incredible "human" stories. You know... about people.

    Anyway...
    It doesn't matter, because your taste obviously differs from most.
    Good luck with that.
    You'll need it.

    I thought about another really great Teacher, Student movie. It made me want to read the book.

    A movie called:peaceful Warrior with Nick Nolte.

    I related so much to the main character and learned a lot from the movie and book. In fact I use to be that kid. angry, really negative and unforgiving. Good movie. Took so much away from it.
