Interview with Dolores Torres
QUESTION 29
INTERVIEWER:

Let's go back inside that school year. We're going to go backwards in time. What was your best memory? What were you most hopeful about this experiment? What made you, what, what promise did you see when you were going to those schools, especially seeing your kids in those schools? What, what, what, what was the change?

DOLORES TORRES:

Well, I think the first change that we started to see was that the schools had gotten much quieter. Teachers were in the classrooms. Kids weren't roaming the halls. And there seemed to be a, a, a real process of education going on which before, I mean, you went, the classes were rowdy. They were disruptive. The teachers either ignored it or the teachers weren't in the classroom. The classes weren't covered. It kind of settled down quite a bit.

INTERVIEWER:

Let's just stop.
