Storyline

Another school year is off to a booming start at Winslow High School - an urban high school outside of Boston. Principal Steven Harper spends his days putting out fires, defending his faculty and just trying to keep it together. Lauren Davis, the idealistic head of the social studies department, and Harry Senate, a geology teacher with buried secrets, are embroiled in controversy for failing the star running back before a huge game with the cross-town rivals. But they both have bigger personal problems. Lauren has been asked out on a date by the icy vice principal and Harry has been put on probation for wielding a gun in one of his classes. When he's not dodging the star running back's lawyer or pulling a bully off the class geek, Principal Harper is trying to calm Ms. Hendricks.

Quotes

[Kevin is protesting the inaccuracies of the class textbook]
Kevin Jackson: Jefferson used to sleep with his slaves. The book don't say nothin' about that. They don't even say how he even had slaves. Washington neither. So I don't see why I should bust my *black ass* reading about a bunch of lies.
Harvey Lipschultz: Well, you see Mr. Jackson, my job is to see that you get your BLACK ASS into college. And whether these things in these books be lies or not, your achievement tests that you will be taking are standardized. And ...

I'm sad when I recognize the low attention to this great TV show. I think everything has some defects but as a mass, it is a wonderful series. I think that when the show lost Harry Senate it loses a powerful role that no one can fill in. that is the the most important loss in this show. I was so attracted to this great show that is recently ended in an Arabic open channel ( mbc 4 ).It is interesting to watch a real live drama about everyday life of Winslow High School. I was surprised about these losses in the great cast every episode that the producer thinks it is important for the plot to be successful!!! I hope you will give this show its true place in the history of American TV shows. Thank you.
