The Ron Clark Story

This week I watched the 2006 movie, The Ron Clark Story. It's a must-see movie - a definite "5".

The story is about a white teacher who moved to Harlem and chose the "worst" class in the school. And he turned them around to be the "best" class, when they scored on required tests even higher than the honors' class.

I hadn't heard of his book, The Essential 55, but I'll look for it this week.

Ask your kids' teachers if they have seen this movie or have read this book.
