Stand and Deliver  is about kids who were having a hard time in school but were able to overcome their problems by listening to their new teacher, Mr. Escalante, who takes his own personal time to help his students succeed in school. After he helps them, they start to realize that they’re capable of actually passing and graduating. After the kids finish the test AP Calculus Test, their scores are so unexpectedly high that the State School Board accuses them of cheating. Mr. Escalante goes to the State’s office to let them know that none of the kids had cheated. After leaving the office having made his point, the Board let the kids retake the exam.

During the retake officials hovered over the students while retaking the exam, Also two Board members had walked around the room looking for anyone with wondering eyes. When the kids were done, they had turned the exams in and waited for the results. About a week later, the results came back with the scores looking no different than the first time, every student had passed the test.

I think this movie reflects on people who have given up, or think they’re not good enough to finish something. The moral of this movie is to never give up, always put 100% into everything you do. You can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
