Mesa Community College Course: EDU222 – Introduction to the Exceptional Learner Movie Review: #1 #2 Joyce McHenry 1. Movie Title: Mar Adentro (The Sea Inside) 2.

As far as education assumptions, I think it is assumed by Ramón that the education his nephew, Javier, is receiving is decidedly worse than the education he himself received growing up.
