To the casual visitor, there is little about John Marshall Junior High School in Brooklyn to attract attention.

From the outside, the five-story, red-brick building, erected in Brooklyn in 1924, looks like many of the 900 other schools in the five boroughs in New York City. The walls are unscarred, there are no broken windows, the playground is well kept.

George Allen's second article in his "Undercover Teacher" series for the New York World-Telegram and Sun. He worked as a teacher for two months at Brooklyn's John Marshall Junior High School, one of the city's roughest schools.
