Won’t Back Down

Source: Common Sense Media

Parents need to know that Won’t Back Down, which is based on actual events, follows a mother’s journey to turn her daughter’s failing elementary school around. There’s some insulting language (“idiot,” “retard,” as well as “ass”) and bullying — a teacher does nothing as a Individual rips another Individual’s backpack, and the same teacher purposely keeps a kid from leaving class to use the bathroom. Jamie, the protagonist mom, wears tight clothes and flirts with pretty much everyone — culminating in a romantic relationship with a teacher at her child’s school. Adults drink at a bar and restaurant, but there’s no drunkenness. Parents and kids will be reminded of the difference that just one or two people can make in a community.
