"Having been out of high school for five years, I suspected there might be a few changes when I returned htis fall for three weeks . . . Sure enough, the styles and musical preferences had changed, girls were wearing a lot more makeup and practically all the girls (and some boys) used styling mousse in their hair.

"On the academic side, it seemed as if less were expected of the students than when I was in school. Questions on tests and in classrooms required answers that usually could be lifted right out of textbooks with little analysis . . . "

Part One in the Milwaukee Journal Sunday Magazine of Vivian S. Toy's multipart series, reporting on her time posing as a student in Milwaukee public schools.
