I think we can all agree that the American educational system could use some improvements, and no institution embodies that idea more than Gotham City's prestigious Gotham Academy. There's high tuition that prices quality education out of the reach of the middle class, an emphasis on standardized testing that doesn't prepare students for real-world problem solving, and, perhaps most pressing, the fact that pretty much everyone on staff has committed some kind of thematic crime that has led them to fight the vigilante known as Batman.
Actually, in retrospect, that might be one of the school's more positive points, but as its second semester rolls on, promising students like Colton Rivera and Pomeline Fritch are having difficulty pursuing a proper education thanks to the fact that most, if not all, of their teachers are in fact arch-criminals.

Now, though, we're only a week away from the story's return in the pages of Gotham Academy: Second Semester in next week's all-new #1. That means we can all rejoice --- at least for a second. For you see, in among all the horrors and crimes of Gotham City is the most dire problem of all: Olive Silverlock might be falling in... with the wrong crowd!
