Scull, W. Reed; Peltier, Gary L.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v81 n1 p13-17 Sep-Oct 2007
Popular film impacts the work of educators and education in a variety of ways. In this article, the authors examine popular films' portrayals of education and K-12 schooling and higher education instructors from a variety of perspectives. The authors also investigate how education provides a platform for the examination of contemporary cultural concerns. The authors and education graduate students offer recommendations for fruitful viewing. In addition, the authors provide some rationales for further study of education in popular film.
