'Fix Edukation Now' -- A Plea for Education Reform From the Movies

This country's public education system has been in dire need of a boost for years -- just look at the evidence collected by the diligent folks at Next Movie; they've created a PSA from all your favorite movie student/slackers (because not all of America's bright young stars of tomorrow can argue their way from a C+ to an A-).

Ah, the classroom movie. So ripe a setting for tales of crap teachers learning to lead and crap students learning to learn. For some reason the ultimate movie about teaching and teachers is absent from the above only a blip on the above honor roll -- yes, I speak of 1995's Dangerous Minds, the movie that taught us the most important lesson of all: That even a two-hit wonder like Coolio could make one of the best (according to Billboard) ditties of all time.

Seriously, kids. If Coolio can make it, so can you.
