David E. Kelley's latest prime-time drama is set in an urban high school and focuses on the travails of the school's overworked, underpaid teachers and administrators. Controversies abound, both typical and atypical: one teacher must deal with the backlash after failing the star football player, another brandishes a gun in class for “educational purposes.”
