The Ron Clark Story

The true story of schoolteacher Ron Clark who left his North Carolina home to work in one of Harlem's toughest schools. While this storyline wins no points for originality, Matthew Perry's performance is winning and heartfelt, and the young cast are believable as hard-bitten inner city kids, unused to someone who really cares about their futures. Made for television, Perry was nominated for a Golden Globe for his rousing interpretation of a teacher who really made a difference.
