Extracts from this document...

The second group that is in the black and white part of the film consists of the kids that have no hope of getting anywhere in life. At the start of Dangerous Minds there is a group of girls who are talking to each other. They are wearing big baggy cloths that a normal person would not wear. They have a lot of makeup on. They look very scruffy but would want to fit in with the rest of the crowd.

She said that she will save Emilio's life but in the end she is not able to and Emilio ends up dying and she does not fulfil her promise. The director represents the teenagers in Lou Anne's class first by showing how bad and disobedient they are and then slowly through the film shows how they change and cooperate with the teacher.
