Great list, Kandi!

There are a couple of British films on this subject which might be suitable for this list:

Clockwise starring John Cleese
Although most of the story actually takes place outside the school.

The History Boys starring Richard Griffiths and Dominic Cooper

Thanks Kathy, Anna and JPHOLT for the appreciation, comments and suggestions on this list. I need to watch some movies to see if it can be added to the list.

I know that you mean, Kandi! I keep getting suggestions on my movie lists for films that I haven't yet seen. :)

You're welcome, Kandi! I thought of a couple TV movies that aren't widely known that you might want to watch.

One is The Ron Clark Story starring Matthew Perry. It's based on a true story.

The other is School of Life starring Ryan Reynolds.

The Great Debaters
