The Principal (1987)


Burglary. Drugs Assualt. The students at Brandel High are more than the new principal Rick Latimer (James Belushi) bargained for. Gangs fight to control the school using knives — even guns — when they have to. When Latimer and the head of security (Louis Gossett, Jr.) try to clean up the school and stop the narcotics trade, they run up against a teenage mafia. A violent confrontation on the campus leads to a deadly showdown with the drug dealer's gang, and one last chance or Latimer to save his career... and his life.
