A teacher in "the ghetto" wins the trust and respect of her class of "homies". Absolutely laughable exploitative drivel.

Even though I saw this a long time ago, from what I remember this was a really good movie.

Nice and inspiring. I think this is the movie where a girl is holding a copy of Rita Hayworth's biography. I had just read it several months before. Michelle Pfeiffer is tough and sweet and this is a surprisingly good movie that works better than expected.
