"I don’t recognize the teachers portrayed in this movie…The teachers I know are women and men who have devoted their lives to helping children learn and grow and reach their full potential. These women and men come in early, stay late to mentor and tutor students, coach sports teams, advise the student council, work through lunch breaks, purchase school supplies using money from their own pockets, and spend their evenings planning lessons, grading papers and talking to parents."

These are the kind of teachers I know! I think every parent should sit in their child's classroom unannounced, for just one day, and see what teachers do and the problems they deal with on a daily basis. It may open some eyes as well as the doors to better comunication with these parents.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is another movie about a make believe teacher . Acting like a teacher beats the hell out of working for a living .
