Storyline

She resolves to try the experiment of giving them a woman teacher, and applies for the situation. The trustees of the school, who are at their wits' end, gladly accept the offer. She arrives, and when the bad boys led by Hank and Bill prepare to give the new teacher a warm reception, they are astonished and dumbfounded when they find it is a woman. By force of will and stern discipline she gets the school in order and wins the love of all the scholars. She becomes particularly interested in Jack Hally, a pupil who is struggling hard to get a good education, make a name in the world, and prepare a home for his sweetheart, Prudence.

The character drawing is excellent
2 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Perhaps this film will remind older people of the days in the country school when it was quite the fashion to throw men teachers outdoors just for sport. This had been done in a certain district a number of times when a little woman appears on the scene. That fazes the boys for a time and before they can collect themselves they are under control by sheer domination of will. A little love affair creeps in and there is an attempt to punish one of the boys through jealousy, but ultimately the teacher fools them all by resigning and leaving with her sweetheart. The character drawing is excellent and there is much good acting in the picture. - The Moving Picture World, August 19, 1911
