to Children in Internment Camps
personal recollection of schooling in an internment camp.
recall sitting in classrooms without books and listening to
the instructor talking about technical matters that we could
not study in depth. The lack of qualified evacuee teachers,
the shortage of trained teachers was awful. I remember having
to read a chapter a week in chemistry and discovering at the
end of a semester that we had finished one full years' course.
There was a total loss of scheduling with no experiments, demonstrations
or laboratory work.
