It portrays teachers as incompetent, inept and oft-times dishonest individuals who view any criticism of their performance as harrassment; it describes the insecurities of some school officials who were unable to cope with the challenges of "the system"; and it exemplifies how a few uninformed parents and community residents can illegally disrupt the educational process for hundreds of children.
