Cicely Tyson and Morgan Freeman star in the true story of Marva Collins, a talented and determined teacher who leaves Chicago's public school system to open her own school. With no funding, in a poor neighborhood, teaching children that the school system has labeled "unteachable," Collins should fail. But refusing to accept failure – from herself or her students – Collins succeeds, and her students excel in this moving drama, The Marva Collins Story. Edward Asner introduces the film and summarizes Mrs. Collins' stunning achievements with underprivileged children in Chicago.
