College Courses Not Much Help in Difficult Classes

The training in education which I was required to take for my New York City teaching license was of little practical value to me in classroom 404 of John Marshall Junior High School.

I taught two ninth grade adjustment classes - slow learners - and two eighth grade average classes. In all of them, I felt handicapped because I didn't know how to teach or control them.

The third installment of George Allen's "Undercover Teacher" series for the York World-Telegram and Sun. The reporter worked as a teacher at Brooklyn's John Marshall Junior High School for two months.
