Dangerous Minds
30 December 2004 | by onetwin-1See all my reviews

This movie is not based on an inner city school. It is based on a high school in Belmont CA. The name is Carlmont. The students were primarily white and the School district forced the closing of the "Inner City school Ravenswood" The Students were bussed from East Palo Alto to Belmont CA. These students were rebellious and mad that their school was forced to close and the students of Carlmont resented the fact that others were bussed in. It has taken many years for everyone to get along and they still have their problems but, the school has been successful in blending the ethnic groups. I know this because I graduated from Carlmont in 1982 and saw the school grow better each year.
