Cara Landry, a student in Mr. Larson's 5th grade classroom, publishes her own newspaper titled "The Landry News". She includes an editorial about her teacher, Mr. Larson, who had once been the teacher of the year, but had over time become completely apathetic and demoralized. Mr. Larson soon returns to his old teaching ways, when Cara's merciless editorial opens his eyes to the truth. Cara continues the class newspaper as a "class project" and extends the newspaper with every edition, as the rest of the class begins to contribute to it.
