How Movies Set in Public Schools Get It Wrong

From Rantings of an Arab Chick:

1. The actors are too fucking old. It just gets silly. I hear they’re doing a 90210 reunion series… Could have fooled me, I thought the original 90210 WAS a reunion show.

2. They throw far too many paper airplanes. I have yet to see any of my students actually even construct a rudimentary paper airplane, let alone aim one skillfully at the nerdy kid’s head.

3. There ARE no nerdy kids in the really nasty classes. The closest thing is the Goth kid who reads novels about suicidal anorexic girls who cut themselves. And set fire to things.
