[minimal shelfwear, spine very slightly turned; jacket shows just a bit of wear at edges and extremities]. Kind of an British "Blackboard Jungle"/"Up the Down Staircase," with an idealistic teacher trying to cope with students in a "special school" who are "uniformly disturbed, ranging from the violently psychotic to the pathetic simpleton." The author, a native of Kansas, had had relevant teaching experience in both San Francisco (including as part of "a team of social workers dealing with juvenile delinquent Negro boys") and London, where she lived at the time of the publication of this, her first novel; her subsequent work seems to have been limited to a couple of paperback originals, circa 1980. This novel was the basis for the 1978 British film THE CLASS OF MISS MacMICHAEL, starring Glenda Jackson and Oliver Reed. There were a couple of paperback printings (including a tie-in with the movie), but the original hardcover edition is very uncommon.
