My Father’s Early School Days

My Father’s Early School Days

This blog info was taken for my entry date July 5, 1982.
=========================================

My dad told me that he used to walk 5 miles to school.
He got up at about 5am. There were 5 blacks in school.
There was about 20 people in all.

The teacher eat a lot, made them work, read out loud.
My father mentioned that the teacher had a ball “of hair” on her head.

They had to bring their own lunch, if your didn’t, you wouldn’t to eat.
The school was from 8 am to 3 pm.
===========================================
Some thoughts:
I can’t recall which school my dad said he went too.
There were only 5 blacks in this class…
This was well before desegregation.

Thanks for reading.

    Things have changed. (or have they?) Schools are integrated. There must be no problem with meals based on news reports of obesity.
