"Someone threw a dead rat in a chow mein carton into Mr. Gregg's American democracy class today. "Mr. Gregg confesses that he wanted to scream, but didn't. "Later he uses the incident as an example of the importance of ''intention'' in the judicial system. . . . "

Nix describes her classroom experiences over a month spent as a student undercover in a San Francisco high school for a report in the San Francisco Chronicle. This is part two of her four-part series.
