Did You Know?


Many of the actions and reforms undertaken by Principal Gordon Brooks would in fact be illegal in most U.S. public schools. While principals can and do search student lockers, no principal has the authority to randomly expel students for minor offenses, fire teachers, or order drug tests. Such actions usually require hearings and referendums, sometimes very lengthy in nature, held before county and school board officials. See more »

Alternate Versions

In the DVD version and syndicated reruns, the song that played during the cold opening scene in the original 1989 airing has been replaced. This is evident as the new song's lyrics reference Andy Garcia's role in The Godfather: Part III, Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes's arson incident which did not occur until 1994 and the group Kris Kross who did not debut until 1992.
