Leonna Barrett (Character)
from Lean on Me (1989)
Leonna Barrett: What happened this morning is an outrage! My boy's no criminal! He and those children belong in school, not back out on the streets! Our kids don't deserve this! Some of those children are smart. They're just discouraged what chances they got out there, what kind of jobs they got waiting for them. What chance do they have now? He insulted the black football coach! The man's gone crazy! He's declared war on his own people!
Mrs. Arthur: May I remind you, Miss Barrett, that Mr. Clark was nice enough to come to this emergency meeting after a very trying day?
Leonna Barrett: That's what he gets paid for!
Mrs. Arthur: I think we owe him a chance to respond.
[the audience claps in agreemeet]
Joe Clark: [getting up and stand before the group] They say one bad apple spoils the bunch.
[shouts of protest]
Joe Clark: But what about 300? Rotten to the core! Now, you're right, Mrs. Barrett. This is a war. It's a war to save 2700 other students, most of whom don't have the basic skills to pass the state exam.
Joe Clark: Now if you want to help us, fine.
