Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/25/23 Full Review Jerry R Great movie! Very inspiring and touching! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/22/23 Full Review wblighting This movie is Perry's legacy. Friends was great entertainment, but this movie will inspire educators and that is a real life gift. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review M L wonderful, true life story - very inspiring teacher - wish they were all like him. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review Queen V To me, Mr. Ron Clark was an impressive movie that shows if you believe in a child they can go far. Our Teachers should always be treated with respect. I recommend this movie 🍿🍿🍿🍿🍿 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/23 Full Review Zander i I saw someone said it was predictable, but I think they fail to realize this is based on the real story of Ron Clark. Life is predictable at times, would people rather the kids have no improved after all of that work they put in? This is based on a true story, when you sit down and you get on a kids level and you work with them on improvement, they improve. You just have to respect them like you expect them to respect you. This movie was great from start to finish, and I'm sure that Ron Clarks full story is great from start to finish. He has done amazing work and he is the person teachers should have on a pedestal looking up towards. We need more teachers like Mr.Clark.
