Interview with Rhody McCoy

How did you keep the schools open in '67, how, how did you keep the- even though there was a teacher's strike going on?


Ah, at that time, ah, ah, two or three things happened. We didn't lose many teachers out to the strike, ah, for, for whatever reason, some of the teachers who had seen, ah, what was taking place over the summer, I guess felt maybe their jobs might be in jeopardy and so they came back in at the beginning. Ah, and then we manned it by, ah, parents. Parents actually came in and took charge of classrooms. That lasted, I don't know maybe a, a month or so and, ah, teachers began coming back to us.
