This study examined how public secondary schools and educators were portrayed in American films of the 1990s. Thirty films were selected for study that were produced and released in the decade of the 1990s. Content analysis and a "Film Analysis Form" produced answers to eight questions regarding the learning environments, portrayal of educators and students, the academic and life lessons taught, and positive or negative statements about education in the films of this decade.
The results showed a series of complex environments, educators, students, and academic and life lessons delivered. An assessment of the positive and negative portrayal provided more negative views of the public secondary school than positive ones.
