Time Out says

This was the movie which featured 'Rock Around the Clock' over the credits and had Teds ripping up the seats on its first release in Britain. But this notoriety gives a false impression of the film. It's based on Evan Hunter's moralistic bestseller about a young New York teacher at a tough school, and is very worthy in its intentions. Highlights include Vic Morrow as a confused knife-wielding delinquent, but the studied pseudo-documentary atmosphere never quite convinces.
