Rating: 4/4 -- We need more American films like Up the Down Staircase. We need more films that might be concerned, even remotely, with real experiences that might once have happened to real people. Full Review

New York's Calvin Coolidge High begins the new school year. With no chalk. No books. Too many students. Over clanging bells, the P.A. booms, "Please disregard all bells." It might say, "Please disregard all learning."
