In 1988, the movie stand and deliver
told the story of Jaime Escalante (information about him is here
) and what happened in the class of '82 at Garfield high school. Essentially it is movie about a teacher who dares to challenge and believe in students to do what they, and those around them, think is impossible to achieve.
What is interesting about the untold story it explains how the system would end up turning its back on the man and ideas who helped create a different and arguably successful teaching program and beliefs.
