Synopsis

Stand and Deliver does just that. This moving, acclaimed crowd pleaser is the dynamic saga of real-life heroes determined to conquer a foe few people dare confront: the National Advanced Placement Calculuc Exam. Edward James Olmos gives a performance of fire and grit as Jaime Escalante, a math teacher at East Los Angeles Garfield High who refuses to write off his inner-city students as losers. Escalante cajoles, pushes, threatens and inspires 18 kids who were struggling with fractions to become math whizzes.

Dove Review

“Stand and Deliver” is the great story of a teacher who refused to give up on his inner-city students. Escalante is a very intriguing man who knows just what to do in order to get through to his students. He is firm, but not unfair. He is smart, but not condescending. He gives his students, who are either in a gang or on their own, a person to look up to and to be stable. Escalante gives the kids something to strive for and he proves to them that they are better than what everyone tells them they are.
