Before commanding Galactica, Edward James Olmos taunted kids into success

Stand And Deliver is not without these clichés, particularly in terms of how quickly the barrio students of Garfield High, written off by the school as unteachable, come around to loving Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos), an instructor who refashions an essentially time-killing remedial math program into a training ground for AP calculus. But the film is only outwardly sentimental. Underneath the narrative's "inspirational" shell is a surprisingly tough movie about racism, cultural baggage, and the egomania that's required of any initiations of major social change.
