From kindergarten to college, from St. Trinian’s to Rydell High, schools and classrooms have provided the background for multitudinous films. Dedicated teachers, evil vice principals, nerds, mean girls, precocious children, slackers, geniuses, jocks, and misfits have populated films throughout the history of the medium.
On September 2-5, it’s time to go Back To School!!!
1. Feel free to write about any topic relating to school and the movies. The choice is yours. As long as the topic relates to school and film (from any era), it’s more than welcome.
