A lot of books which I wouldn’t think of bringing because they would be “ on too high a level” or “too intellectual” are beign used d
In the new chapter of letters from mississippi, the volunters share their experiences in the freedom school for the segregated black in the south. Many schools, before the freedom schools, were in bad condition. There were even orders not to teach negros certain subjects, but as the freedom schools opened ". . . . It changed from a celebration to a crisis. . . " (p. 108 L.M) And hundreds of unexpected students arrived wanting the knowlegde that the schools were giving.
School for Freedom
Dear people, Ruleville, July (Pg. 104)
Mississippians finally have money for the Negro school. Unfortunately, the white school seems better.
“The following things found in white school are missing from the Negro school: lockers of any kind (even for the football team), ventilators, central such heating (they have those electric fan units in the ceiling such as you see in garages), water coolers.”
“Children get textbooks discarded by the white schools.”
This is just the beginning for them to build a new school; they are trying to build more to complete it.
Although many teachers and staff are a low level and undergraduate student, yet they still want to teach.
“The teachers are underpaid, under everything”.
It seems like the Nero students is not going to learn a lot compare to the whites school, because the teachers is the “qualifications for teachers are low levels, including college”. (pg. 105)
Argument: (pg. 108)
The teachers are very happy that they can go school, and the students are very proud to learn.
“Every class is beautiful. The girls respond, respond, respond.”
“They drain me of everything that I have to offer so that I go home at night and completely exhausted but very happy…
Pam is a teacher; she is glad that the students is learning and respond back. She seems like a good teacher because she taught the students about the Southern whites, the Europeans, and the students just learned from it by responding.
