Dear Fellow SHAKSPER Members,

I do not know Boston Public, but, undoubtedly, we will get it on one of
the channels of Spanish TV sometime next year.

I often wonder if American TV ?High School? series do reflect the kind
of phenomena that can be found in real life in any average USA secondary
education institution. I must say that they give an awful image of
American education (and they give us a foretaste of what is coming in
Spanish education since, unfortunately, both the government and
teenagers here reproduce what -according to my sources- has been going
on in America for years: lowering of standards, responsibility and
discipline, and general confusion about what is a must and what is not.

I also wonder if to counteract this kind of ideas -busting the
Bard-(future film: Bard-busters?), Aldous Huxley?s Brave New World,
Orwell?s Nineteen Ninety-Four, and Ray Bradbury?s Farenheit 459 (both
novel and film) would serve as antidotes.

J. Cora.
