In the spirit of the beginning of the school year, I decided to compile a list of school themed movies or shows that I remember and loved as a kid/teenager.  Please add ones that you do not see on the list.  I’m sure there are many that I either missed or missed out on.  Many of these movies or shows helped shape my appreciation of education, the classroom, and how important the teacher is.  How many movies or television shows can you come up with?
