Laura finally loses her patience with Harriet Oleson's meddling and "suggestions" for the school. So, Laura resigns and lets Mrs. Oleson run the school, a task she gleefully accepts. She implements French lessons and art appreciation into the curriculum, and makes the children wear uniforms to school.

Albert leads a class rebellion against Mrs. Oleson's nonsense, but Laura admonishes him for taking matters into his own hands. Meanwhile, Nels – who supports the more traditional curriculum – says nothing, since he knows he can't get through to his wife, so he allows the visiting regional superintendent of schools to do the talking for him.
