Synopsis

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. His predominantly white pupils are destined for society's scrapheap and they turn their resulting hatred for authority - and their personal prejudices - against him. Undeterred, Thackeray confronts the teens head on, throwing out conventional education methods for a crash course in surviving the adult world.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
