Though it's often suggested that problems in schools are a recent development, this groundbreaking 60s drama underlines that classroom aggravation and failing grades have always been an issue. Mark Thackeray (Poitier) is the black engineer who takes on a job teaching 16-year-olds in a tough London school.

Undeterred, Thackeray confronts the teens head on, throwing out conventional education methods for a crash course in surviving the adult world.
