Having taught in the New York City school system for 32 years and now
retired, I am quite qualified to comment on this ground-breaking film.
When it came out, few people realized how bad some of our urban schools
were. The truth is that the situation is even far worse today.
This great film attempts to show the truth about our urban school
centers. It depicts the complete lack of discipline as well as a
totally inept and unsympathetic school administration. The latter will
hide incidents to show that their school is a good one.
Glenn Ford is terrific as the idealistic teacher. Having come from the
military, he soon sees that the school is worse than many army
situations he has encountered.
Gang violence is prevalent. Student disruption is constant. Vic Morrow
and his gang of thugs, (yes, Mayor Bloomberg, they are thugs not
Transit Workers) do their best to make sure that no one learns anything
and that mayhem is the general order of the day.
The scene where Richard Kiley's records are destroyed in front of him
by these recalcitrants is memorable.
If our society would only realize what these schools have become and do
something about it. Instead, teachers are routinely blamed. Teachers
must be psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers,and parents for so
many who resist learning and authority.
The film was an omen for what was to come. Sadly, we have not learned
from it. Yes, we try catch phrases like cooperative learning, etc. but
the fact remains that teaching cannot be done until there is effective
An A+ for what this film tries to show. Nonetheless, the worst was yet
