Stand and Deliver
This is yet another 80s classic and one of the most inspirational movies I have ever seen. Stand and Deliver follows the story of a math teacher in a Hispanic neighborhood. He works with his students to help them stay in school and learn calculus. In a dropout-prone high school, this educator gives his students the drive they need to care about their education and to prove to themselves that they are smart, worthwhile individuals. It is truly an under-appreciated gem.
