| Study hard and stay in school
In its clumsy and poverty row way Chesterfield Pictures The Little Red Schoolhouse is a reminder to the youth of America to stay in school and study. Quit and you wind up like Frank Coghlan who stumbles his way into association with a heist gang and a murder rap.

Even though Lloyd Hughes is courting Coghlan's sister and fellow school teacher Ann Doran he wants Coghlan to tow the mark in school. Not happy with that Coghlan quits and becomes one of the wild boys of the road.

Even though he's caught in a far away city for the things I describe he won't even tell them his name lest the family honor be besmirched. And Coghlan's dog goes with him everywhere even to juvenile prison. In real life the poor pooch would have been put down.

A really improbable story with some unbelievable characters in the tale.
