    Not since Up the Down Staircase has the insanity of the public school system been explored with such humor and love for students. Tiny, pretty, ex-marine Miss Johnson bullies, bluffs, and cajoles her students into thinking and caring about school. An encouraging, high-spirited account of an inner-city teacher's first years on the front lines at Parkmont High.

Dangerous Minds

by Raech on Oct 19, 2007

This is the true account of an ex-Marine who becomes a teacher in a California high school. She ends up with a class of the worst-behaved kids in the school, near juvenile delinquents who consistently fail classes, threaten other students and went so far as to put their previous teacher in the hospital. Determined to prove that all students can learn, she sets out to earn the kids' trust, spark their interest in school, and prove that instead of basic math and spelling, they are capable of dealing with algebra and Shakespeare. Her commitment to her students leads her to visit their homes and neighborhoods, meet their families, and become somewhat involved in their personal lives, in an effort to show them how much she cares.
