Top Ten Teacher movies

The guys over at The Jesus Creed blog published a list of their Top Ten Teacher movies as follows:

1. Freedom Writers
2. Ron Clark Story
3. Coach Carter
4. Radio
5. Dangerous Minds
6. Dead Poets Society
7. Lean on Me
8. Stand and Deliver
9. To Sir, With Love
10. Blackboard Jungle

I find it interesting that they listed "Freedom writers" number one when it was so overlooked at the box office. I personally loved it too.

I would put Mr. Holland's Opus as number one on my list. What about you?


  1. I've never seen most of those, but i would agree that Mr. Holland's Opus tops my list too.

  2. Mr. Holland's Opus is a solid choice, but as I am an English teacher, I have a soft spot in my heart for Dead Poet's Society. I have yet to see a movie, however, that better captures the stereotypes of teachers better than Teachers, with Nick Nolte. What about School of Rock?

  3. What about Conrack, with Jon Voight? You had suggested that one to me last December.

  4. CONRACK -- Absolutely it bumps Mr Holland's Opus to number Two!
