Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The New Jersey communities of Paterson and Westfield were used as exterior "backdrops" in this Biograph comedy. W. Christie Miller plays a kindly schoolmaster who finds himself the butt of innumerable practical jokes. Apparently unable to control his charges, the old man is dismissed by the school board. But the kids rally in support of the teacher, proving at examination time how much he's taught them over the past year. Although Biograph's director-general D. W. Griffith usually assigned such assistants as Mack Sennett and Dell Henderson to direct the studio's comedies, Griffith chose to call the shots on Examination Day at School himself.
