The last day of 4th grade my entire class watched "The Princess Bride".  :)

In my 8th grade social studies class, we watched "To Kill a Mockingbird", "12 Angry Men", and a couple of others but I don't remember the names anymore.

Oh, and in Driver's Ed my sophomore year in high school we watched "Duel".

I remember Watership Down, barely. It's been a long time ago.

I really remember Romeo and Juliet, with my 9th grade English teacher Mrs. Billcheck. She told us about the nudity, and made a bfd of the 1/10th of a second nipple shot...

"It's in this scene!"
"Get ready!"
"Here it comes!"
"THERE IT IS!!!!"

lol, no wonder I'm warped. It's my teachers' doing.

  As classroom education I remember watching Gallipoli in high school and a made-for-TV movie called Ryan(?) - not sure of the title but it's about the kidnapped child who turned-up murdered...

  In grade school the school started "movie day" on Saturday afternoons in the school cafeteria.  Refreshments were provided by the moms.  I remember going to a few of these and the features were things like Munster Go Home and Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein.  In jr. high movie day was re-instated for a time and I remember watching The Apple Dumpling Gang...

Gee...I must have gone to a poor school. I can only remember seeing " One Day In the Life of Ivan Denisovich" ...that's a movie title you don't forget! (had to walk to a theatre for it though) ...and for some reason we viewed "The Wrath of God" as well...

Other than those we read those thingies...you may remember them....BOOKS!   ;)

None.  I don't think our parents would have stood for it. We did watch Alan Shepard going up in space and the moon landing.

I'm afraid I don't really remember a whole lot, but the ones that I do remember were:

House of Usher (starring Vincent Price) in 11th grade English.  Also saw The Pit and the Pendulum, and was already a huge Edgar Allen Poe fan and Vincent Price fan.

  I can't imagine why your school would show this selection of flicks, at school, during school hours (with the exeption of the classics adaptations and historical dramas.)  If that ever happened around here I'm sure the district would have a riot on their hands, by the parents...

My American History teacher really wanted to show "Glory" in class because we were studying the Civil War, but was denied permission.

Why?  The movie is probably about as close to what really happened as any Civil War period movie.

At my school, classes were taken to the cinema to watch films, but by pure coincidence I was sick on those days and never went on them> I can only recall the class going to Fantasia and Oliver!

That's why

Side note,  my great uncle was in the U.S. Colored Troops and marched into Richmond with Grant, and was at Appomattox for the surrender.  When I was in fourth grade we had a Civil War play and the teacher told me I would have to be a slave because blacks didn't do anything in the war.  I don't know what went on in the meeting between the teacher, the principal, my parents and grandparents, but I didn't play a slave.

Oh, I know, and it happens to be one of my favorite movies.  My teacher said the reason why he was denied permission (by the principal!) was because of the movie's rating (R).  ::)  :(

Most historical conflicts go beyond rated R.  The principal was a pansy. >:(

  QFT...

  Which reminds me of:

"The teacher stands in front of the class
But the lesson plan he can't recall
The student's eyes don't perceive the lies
Bouning off every f***ing wall
His composure is well kept
I guess he fears playing the fool
The complacent students sit and listen to some of that
Bulls**t that he learned in school

Europe ain't my rope to swing on
Can't learn a thing from it
Yet we hang from it
Gotta get it, gotta get it together then
Like the motherf***n' weathermen
To expose and close the doors on those who try
To strangle and mangle the truth
'Cause the circle of hatred continues unless we react
We gotta take the power back"
