From Editor's Note: "Staff writer George N. Allen has just emerged from two months as a teacher in one of the city's "difficult" schools - John Marshall Junior High in Brooklyn. The school's principal committed suicide early this year after acts of violence in the school building and on the school grounds. Mr. Allen was assigned to obtain a teacher's job at the school, JHS 120, to learn first-hand the experiences of a teacher there, the attitudes and aptitudes of the students, the day-by-day problems of classroom instruction. School authorities, fellow teachers and students knew nothing of his true identity. From what Mr. Allen experienced himself and from what he learned from other teachers and supervisors there, he has written a series of articles the first of which appears today.

The first article in George Allen's "Undercover Teacher" series, where the New York World-Telegram and Sun's reporter worked as a teacher at Brooklyn's John Marshall Junior High School for two months.
