* UnfortunateImplications: The MightyWhitey and WhiteMansBurden stuff in the movie, especially since that's not how it was in the original book.

* SnarkBait: Chances are if something parodies the "SaveOurStudents" plot, it will be based on this movie.

* AcceptableEthnicTargets: Arguably Hispanics and/or Latinos. The film covers several negative stereotypes about them. "They are usually portrayed as being incredibly poor and will usually be sorted in the same class stereotypes as some low-class African-American groups resulting in many conflicts (ex. gangs)." Same deal here.

** An old commercial for it's airing on television certainly fits this, [[TheFaceless depicting the feet]] of students walking through schools going through the decades depicting them completely unrealistically with a heavy amount of NostalgiaFilter, and then when it got to the 90's... [[FauxHorrific they sure tried really hard to make black and Hispanic kids wearing basketball shoes look scary.]]
* {{Glurge}}: Where to start. A teacher can reach all students just by caring. Caring means not having a life at all. All the other teachers those students ever had just didn't care enough. The school system doesn't need discipline, funding, national standards, or any actual improvements. It just needs teachers who care more. The moral to the story is that everything that goes wrong is the teacher's fault and the overcrowded classrooms, lack of a consistent discipline policy and leadership failings of the administration are never at fault for anything.
** The students are from gang-ridden ghettos, and the teacher is white. The teacher's ability to "overcome racial differences" to "reach the kids" is hailed as something amazing and not at all racist, as most of the other teachers in the school are often black, Hispanic, or other non-white.
