When blogs sound like not-blogs, aka Hollywood films.

From the Chicago Tribune:

He labeled his students "criminals," saying they stole from teachers, dealt drugs in the hallways, had sex in the stairwells, flaunted their pregnant bellies and tossed books out windows. He dismissed their parents as unemployed "project" dwellers who subsist on food stamps, refuse to support their "baby mommas" and bad-mouth teachers because their no-show teens are flunking.

He took swipes at his colleagues, too--"union-minimum" teachers, literacy specialists who "decorate their office door with pro-black propaganda," and security officers whose "loyalty is to the hood, not the school."

Is this real news, or a review of that one Antonio Banderas/Michelle Pfeiffer/Edward James Olmos miracle-worker-in-the-inner-city movie?
