Interview with Les Campbell

OK, and who, who was in the schools, teaching during this time?


Well, we had a combination of those teachers who had refused to follow the lead of the union, they made up about thirty percent of our staff, we had college students who were either graduating or graduated, ah, we had retired teachers who were no longer working but who came out to support, ah, the Ocean Hill movement, and we had, ah, community supporters, people who were not necessarily teachers but who could do some of the things that teachers had done, like tutoring children in math, tutoring them in reading, et cetera.
