His grades are in the toilet- his friend-count qualifies him for leprosy- his bathroom scale hates him- hes been challenged to a fight more times than the heavyweight champion of the world- he has a discipline record the size of a teachers ego, and hes being shipped to Lincoln High, a predominantly black alternative school in a week.

Still, Kenny doesnt care about any of that crap. All he wants to do is make it through each day without angering his mother, who hates having black neighbors and an overweight son.Tony Avery is a black man with problems too. Hes Lincoln Highs new English teacher, but hes not very popular.

He doesnt fit in at all. Maybe its his style of teaching. Maybe its the way he corrects his students inferior and embarrassing speech. Whatever it is, Tony has his share of problems. The last thing he needs is for a racist student like Kenny Houston to come along.Or is it?Portraying an authentic African-American dialect, Learnt tells the story of a discouraged teacher and a troubled student learning the most valuable lessons of their lives in one of Duval Countys worst high schools. A tale that speaks out to teachers, parents, and anyone who has ever set foot in a high school classroom.
