Went downhill after the first season...
Boston Public started off wonderfully, but after the first season it just went downhill...as stated before, the first season dealt with the teachers issues, both at the workplace and at home. While it was EXTREMELY hokey at times (why would a teacher who shot a gun in class keep his job while another who knew of an affair and didn't rat out about it gets fired?) the characters managed to keep the show interesting. Yet in the second season, Mr. Kelley decided to focus on social issues, and the show became a dull drivel. Now that Boston Public has lost the focus on the teachers, there isn't much substance left for the show to run on. I hope that Mr. Kelley quits being such a fool, and brings the show back to its roots rather than cliche plots and horrribly written social commentary.

PS - also stated before, this show is NOTHING what real high school is like. 40 year-old writers have no clue as to the real situations going on in schools around America, they just read a newspaper clip and spice it up exponentially for a script.
