18. See, here's the thing: Senorita Teach had TONS of OTHER films
Edited on Thu Jan-19-06 10:23 PM by WinkyDink
from which to choose, some even RECOMMENDED by NEA, I'd bet.
The sexual "experience" or lack thereof of her students IS BESIDE THE LEGAL and EDUCATIONAL POINT.

Were the students asked to translate this film? Analyze it AS a film (directing, motifs, etc.)?
Or was the teacher stupidly using this particular film as an attention-grabber---and a popularity-among-her-students booster?

She's in trouble. If a theatre owner can be prosecuted, or at least cited, for showing this movie to minors without their guardian, she can be. And her contract with her district is likely going to be against her action.
