Rick is a middle school teacher. His marriage failed and his job was not going well. He was transferred from his original work unit and sent to be the principal of a school called Brandon. This middle school is notorious for Violent Crimes . In this school, almost all violent acts such as drug trafficking, rob , rape , etc. are already commonplace, and no one takes care of skipping classes and refusing to take exams, and those who come here to serve as principals have no good results. But Rick was so intent on running the school that he created a "prohibition" charter. But at the first general meeting of the students, Duncan, the leader of the student group, gave Rick a slap in the face. The contest between Rick and the violent gang represented by Duncan begins. The students and teachers in the school who gradually accepted the management system formulated by Rick were attacked by Duncan's gang. Rick was very annoyed and blamed himself, but Duncan's behavior did not shake Rick's determination to change the school spirit. He insisted on fighting Duncan to the end and bringing this black sheep to justice. Although his determination and style caused dissatisfaction with the society and the police, he finally won and changed the image of the school.

    A bit too much, and a bit illogical.

Lean on Me quotes

  • First Title Cards: The following is based on a true story. Once considered one of the finest schools in America, Eastside High of Paterson, New Jersey, declined over the years until an official report called it a "terrible cauldron of violence." The battle of one man, Joe Clark, to save Eastside High School and to restore its former pride is the subject of our story. It began about twenty years ago.

  • Joe Clark: [on bullhorn to teachers] ... You ask, "How do we get the students in on Saturdays for remedial reading?" So I'll tell you how: We'll go to their homes. We'll talk to their folks. If their folks can't read - as some of them indeed cannot - then they can come in, too. The only way we're going to get anything done around here is to get everyone involved! That goes for all of you: it's time to GET INVOLVED! Everyone in this section, put both your hands above your heads. Raise your hands! PUT THEM UP!

    [the teachers do as they are told]

    Joe Clark: You people represent the 70% of our students who just failed the practice exam. SEVEN OUT OF EVERY TEN STUDENTS! But that is not THEIR failure. I don't blame THEM. The problem is with YOURSELVES! How many hours do you spend preparing your lesson plans? How often do you stay after school to give your students, THE ONES YOU KNOW NEED IT, the extra help they require? *Keep your hands up!* Now you are getting a hint of the hopelessness and shame which makes those failing students throw up their hands at the thought of facing a world for which you have not prepared them. You now get the merest inkling of the despair they feel when left to the mercy of the streets. Keep your hands up high! Now, look around at yourselves. TURN AND LOOK AT YOURSELVES!

    [They do so]

    Joe Clark: Because you are failing to educate them, this is the posture that too many of our students will wind up in. Only they'll be staring down the barrel of a gun!
