The Explosive Generation is a dramatic film directed by Buzz Kulik that centers on the trouble a teacher gets when he decides to approach the topic of sex education in high school. Peter Gifford (William Shatner) had always been a likeable teacher, one the students looked up to as he taught them life skills in their senior year. When the students, initiated by young Janet Sommers (Patty McCormack), ask about sex and dating, Gifford decides to follow through with their interest and asks the students to guide the discussion for the following class by writing down their questions and doing a composition explaining their experiences with it. When the parents however hear of what Gifford is talking about in the class, they petition to the school board to have him ousted, especially once he answers their questions. In solidarity and support of their teacher and the right to discuss the very pertinent subject, the students, including Janet, Dan (Lee Kinsolving), Bobby (Billy Gray), Mark (Beau Bridges, and George (Peter Virgo, Jr.), protest Gifford's dismissal.moreless
