Exasperated over their lack of viable solutions to problem students and growing school violence, teachers and school administrators institute a trial program whereby they can lock away those kids who "don't fit into the mainstream profile." Brainy malcontent Arnold Mosk - over strenuous objects from his school counselor - is labeled a trouble student and herded into the program due to dropping acid to escape his problems, both those at school and at home. While old friend Gary Trancer tries to reconnect with and support Arnold, sociopath Doug Van Housen takes cruel delight in leading his gang of violent school thugs to torment and bully those around him, especially Arnold, leading to tragedy.

Did You Know?
Now, we've devised a format - a... a bastardized correspondance course, if you will - for those students who have already decided that things will be done their way, and education and society be damned. It's a controlled environment. Uh, students are given all the materials the law requires they receive, and they will do with them what they will.
