Lean on Me is a classic in the black community. In 1988, the world was introduced to the troubled Eastside High in Passaic County New Jersey. The cameras went through the troubled halls of the high school that ran rampant with violence, drugs, and disrespectful youths. Joe Clark/Crazy Joe/Bat Man stepped onto the scene, and though he initially came off as cantankerous, there was a method to his madness and he was able to help the students pass the minimum basic skills test.
