Summary:
In 1975, after 14 frustrating years teaching in public schools, Marva Collins

opened the Westside Preparatory School--in her own home--on Chicago's

depressed West Side. Hoping to create an educational environment where the

basics came first (and frivolity was banished altogether), Collins faced problems

from the outset: low enrollment, high bills, bureaucratic snafus, and, most daunting,

the skepticism of her charges' parents. This presentation recounts the story of the

school's trying first year, and along the way, profiles a singular teacher who tempers

old-fashioned strictness with praise, patience, and inspiration.

 is moved to tears by the beautiful gypsy Esmeralda, when she gives him water

and a little pity after he is publicly flogged. But others too are enamored of Esmeralda:

in particular, the self-righteous archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, who is not above

kidnaping and murder to satisfy his lust.
