* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Thackeray occasionally does this, starting with a rant about how sluttish and unladylike the female students are after the incident mentioned above.
* RelationshipUpgrade: Inverted. Braithwaite' s courtship of and eventual engagement to Gillian is downgraded to him being oblivious to her obvious interest in him. Though a line from the sequel indicates that they married.

Added DiffLines:

* YoureNotMyFather: Annoyed at the students insistence on using foul language to provoke him, Thackeray asks one if she's speaks like this when talking to her father. She name-drops this trope, adding "bleeding" for emphasis.

[[caption-width-right:288: TrailersAlwaysLie. In this case, that's a crying shame. This is the poster for the US release as the term ''fresh'' in this context is unknown in the UK]]

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The movie downplays an ongoing theme of Braithwaite's book, the hidden racism in British society. The book opens with a woman refusing to sit next to Braithwaite on a bus, whereas the movie has two women cheerfully joking with Thackeray. There's also no mention that the reason he's working as a teacher in the first place is no-one will give him a job as an engineer, despite being better qualified than most white applicants.

* EurekaMoment: Thackeray has one of these after finding the "disgusting object". He heads into the staff room, rants angrily about his students to the female teacher, and halfway through realizes that the lessons he's been teaching them are absolutely useless for preparing the class for adulthood.

Sidney Poiter plays Mark Thackeray, a teacher originally from [[{{UsefulNotes/Guyana}} British Guiana, now Guyana]], who recently moved from the United States. The plot primarily centers around Thackeray's idealism clashing with his teenage pupils' cynicism.
