When Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin finds himself teaching high school in Toledo, he tosses the syllabus and recruits his students to help mentally break his dream-job-stealing nemesis.
Despite his love of teacher jail, where he's paid to not teach, Jack betrays the boisterous union rep who got him there in favor of Principal Durbin. Niecy Nash guest stars.
While Principal Durbin struggles with budget cuts, Jack discovers his students pity him - so he rallies, making a splash at the school bake sale and getting kicked out of the bookstore for life.
