Rating: 2/5 -- An insult to real teachers with very few truths.
Kansas City Kansan
Rating: 3/4 -- It's too often painfully obvious in its implications and heavy-handed in its delivery, but that's countered by the assembly of an exceptional cast as well as the prevalence of themes that remain relevant to this day. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- The idea here was to do for teaching what MASH did for the war. Unfortunately, they've done for schools what General Hospital did for medicine. Full Review
Someone had another Hospital in mind, and they even hired Arthur Hiller to direct it, but the attempt to merge black humor and strident social commentary seems even more uncertain this time. Full Review
A spunky, outrageous comedy which aims to entertain and at the same time shed some light on what really matters in education. Full Review
Spirituality and Practice
Rating: 4/5 -- involving tribute to everyone who teaches
Classic Film and Television
...Nolte nicely captures the image of a rather shaggy 10-year veteran of the classroom....Macchio's performance is effective...
The educational atmosphere at John F. Kennedy High School is far from ideal. One teacher has a desk that keeps disappearing, another is an escapee from a mental hospital, and a third is frequently bitten by his students. TEACHERS is highlighted by original music by ZZ Top and Joe Cocker.
When irresponsible high school administrators graduate an illiterate teen, they're confronted with a major lawsuit.
