As we are reminded in far too many saccharine Hollywood tales like Stand and Deliver and Freedom Writers, teachers are capable of being extremely impactful to the impressionable youngsters in their care. When they excel at their craft, educators often uncover abilities within their students that would have otherwise remained dormant. Although it is never quite so overtly dramatic about it, School Life skillfully showcases the powerful role education can play in the lives of kids, while maintaining a subtle integrity that only serves to strengthen its thesis.
