First, the smell wasn’t right and the halls were dirty, even though it was the beginning of the school year. The room that was to be his classroom did not have enough chairs for all of the students who had been assigned to the class. Not only did the room look as if it had not been repainted for 20 years, but numerous ceiling tiles were missing.

There was no grass, the stench from local factories was overpowering, and the football field did not even have goalposts. During Mr. Juarez’s first few weeks, he found that the stu- dents were terrific. They were enthusiastic about being back in school.

Supplies were limited, and most of the school’s au- diovisual equipment had been stolen the previous year and not replaced.
