Summary
Go-getter Tracy Flick is a straight "A" student who is determined to be president of Carver High's student body. Jim McAllister is a Social Studies teacher and his student, Tracy, tends to rub him the wrong way. McAllister convinces football player Paul to run against Tracy. His lesbian sister Tammy joins the election after her girlfriend starts going out with Paul. During the campaign, Tracy plays dirty, plying students with muffins and gum. Tammy adopts an anarchist attitude that the student body responds to. Paul has few skills to offer the position. Meanwhile, McAllister's home life is not going very well
