"Peace at any price" is the watchword of far too many public school administrators, who will do almost anything to avoid controversy or, God forbid, bad press; almost anything to prevent the dreaded school board and the high honchos at headquarters from swooping down like vultures. Two frustrated teachers who organized an underground newsletter protesting their administration drew on their experience for their novel about teachers confronting a cowardly principal who barely wrist-slaps a bullying student who, in front of witnesses, throws the vice principal down some stairs, breaking his collarbone. Policies and procedures fail to stem the board's decision to re-admit the ruffian after a five-day suspension, which forces the faculty to take action, braving administrative reprisals. Some will cheer Newton and Kauffman's roman engage, which doesn't balk at featuring a handsome hero, while others will sigh and set it aside, heavyhearted at seeing the all-too-credible circumstances that define their own lives.
