The first mistake this pretty young teacher made was to get off the bus. The second was to walk into Calvin Coolidge High School for the first time. The third was to fall in love with it. Up The Down Staircase follows the story of a feisty rookie educator who passionately teaches a group of New York inner-city students, encouraging them to rise above their circumstances.
