September is upon us, and as countless Staples commercials remind parents everywhere: this is the most wonderful time of the year; the time when the kids go back to school for another nine months of the three Rs.
To help get you in the back-to-school spirit, we’ve rounded up some of the best – and worst – educators to ever grace a silver screen. Teachers who inspired students and audiences alike while making learning fun, and then those other educational icons who were cruel taskmasters. So grab a pencil and a Scantron as we look back at some of our favorite movie educators. (Oh, and pay attention because you will be tested on this later.)
