Ken McGarin has loved women almost as much as he loves teaching public high school students. When he defies the principal and the union delegate in defense of the students, he lands in a stuffy private high school. There he meets the exotic Sheree McFadden, the teacher who makes him forget other women. Together they lead the other teachers who want to reform the school into one that prepares their students for real life. The students vote to call it the Academy of Individual Responsibility. McGarin and his team must defend themselves and their dream against public slander and mob violence.
