A trio of naive, but eager young Midwestern women go to California to teach summer school classes at Regency High School: Perky and willful Conklin T. starts up and coaches an all-female football team, stuffy chemistry teacher Sally Hanson manages to loosen up after she falls hard for a surly juvenile delinquent student, and pert and liberated photography instructor Denise Carter becomes involved with both a two-faced male chauvinist jerk and a more decent and understanding guy.

Roger Corman's wife Julie produces a movie in which a bunch of good-looking babes from Iowa go to California to be teachers, and a bunch of silly things happen. "Summer School Teachers" definitely comes across as a movie made to appeal to the women's liberation movement. Mostly it's all titillation. My favorite part was the scene where the old women are listening to one of the teachers converse with a man, misinterpreting the entire conversation. Whatever the movie's main intention was, it comes out as nice brainless fun, and the final scene affirms that the 1950s mores are LONG gone! The fun lives forever!
PS: Dick Miller (the sexist PE teacher) frequently appeared in Roger Corman's movies, and more recently appears a lot in Joe Dante's movies.
