"Teacher assaulted me, says teenager."
What could possibly lead any teacher in his right mind to strike out at an innocent 14 year-old? And how would parents, colleagues and administrators respond to such a violation? Mr. and Mrs. Miller, seeking an explanation for the "assault" on their adolescent son, find themselves virtually under siege in the office of deputy principal Paul Percy. Instead of placation and explanation, they are caught up in the ongoing tussle between the accused teacher, the pupil welfare coordinator and the deputy principal. The ensuing drama is played out under the omniscient eye of the school cleaner and amidst the eery strains and menacing tones of the office lady and the student body. Mr. Chips, bless his memory, would turn in his grave.
