(From the publisher):
Here are the wonderful adventures of a lovely young schoolteacher in a metropolitan high school. Follow her triumphs over every obstacle, including her fellow-teachers, principal, and students. You'll meet all of them in the "inside" story of what's going on up the down staircase
Bel Kaufman lets her characters speak for themselves through memos, letters, directives from the principal, comments by students, notes between teachers, and papers from desk drawers and wastebaskets, evoking a vivid picture of teachers fighting the good fight against all that stands in the way of good teaching.
