'Stand and Deliver' teacher dies of cancer
"Jaime Escalante, the math teacher portrayed in the 1988 film "Stand and Deliver," died Tuesday after a battle with cancer, according to the actor who played him.
Escalante, 79, was surrounded by his wife, children and grandchildren when he died at his home in Roseville, California, said Edward James Olmos."
"Escalante became a hero for educators, earning him entrance to the National Teachers Hall of Fame and the Presidential Medal for Excellence in Education."
Sure 'Dangerous Minds' gave us Gansta's Paradise, but it was a total ripoff this movie/story.
