The record has been written down by the teacher, but its real reporters are the kids themselves, as individuals, and slowly, fumbling, as groups held together by a kind of loyal. It is a story of major failure, with moments of triumph serving chiefly to point up the stupidity and inadequacy of ""the way it spozed to be"" is too many American schools.
