Episode Summary

EDIT
The Marva Collins Story
AIRED:
In 1975, after 14 frustrating years teaching in public schools, Marva Collins opened the Westside Preparatory School — in her own home — on Chicago's depressed West Side. Hoping to create an educational environment where the basics came first (and frivolity was banished altogether), Collins faced problems from the outset: low enrollment, high bills, bureaucratic snafus, and, most daunting, the skepticism of her charges' parents. This presentation recounts the story of the school's trying first year, and along the way, profiles a singular teacher who tempers old-fashioned strictness with praise, patience, and inspiration.moreless

  • My favorite part when the girl told Marva I hate you then Marva said I love you.

    I remember watching this movie when I was younger. I give this movie 2 thumbs up and I would love to be able to share it with my children one day. I really enjoyed it and wish it was available on DVD. I think that more movies should be on television like this. It really shows the struggles Marva faced and I believe that her teaching methods are a great example of what can be done when someone puts their mind to something. I believe that sometimes we have to step out our comfort zone and try different things in life and I believe that this movie proves that.moreless
