Two of Hollywood's finest juvenile actors, Frank Coghlan Jr. and Dickie Moore, top the cast of The Little Red Schoolhouse. Coghlan plays orphaned Frank Burke, who drops out of school and heads to New York City in the company of his faithful dog. He soon learns that life in the Big City is a bit too rich for his blood, and before long he's bundled off to reform school. Fortunately, he cleans up his act in time to see to it that his kid brother Dickie (Moore) doesn't make the same mistakes. Charles W. Lamont, who'd proven his prowess in handling kids and pets in Educational Pictures' "Baby Burlesks" series, handles the direction.
