As part of the 31 Days of Oscar tradition at Turner Classic Movies, the network is airing Stand and Deliver at 7 p.m. Central tonight.

Edward James Olmos' portrayal of real-life teacher Jaime Escalante (1930-2010) earned him an Oscar Nomination for Best Actor in 1989. If you haven't seen this movie, you should. It's an outstanding lesson on how we limit our children by having low expectations and how young people who are inspired to reach beyond those expectations can achieve wonderful things.
