Movie Date: 'Won't Back Down'

Friday, September 28, 2012 - 03:43 PM

Viola Davis and Maggie Gyllenhaal in "Won't Back Down."

This week, Rafer and Kristen remember their favorite teachers and their favorite teaching movies. It's all in honor of "Won't Back Down," the new movie that pits teachers against parents against student unions. To help them get a grasp of the subject matter, Rafer and Kristen are joined by Kitty Crowley, a real veteran teacher from a failing New York City public school.

It's Ruth who left the answer to the trivia question about baseball. I just want to say that when I called I was so! excited! that I actually knew the answer (I never know the answer) and apparently it came through in my message. When I heard the podcast last night I WOKE UP my husband so he could hear it and giggled for at least 5 minutes afterward. You guys made my day!
The teachers who inspired me? Mrs. Eikenberry, Mrs. Dupre, Mr. Anderson - to name just a few.
