Guy B. Phillips Junior High
"I was never so angry, the first day that I went to Phillips. That's where I went to teach, Phillips. And I could not believe, when they had the lunch time, these kids ran, I mean, it was just like a zoo or something. Nobody, none of the teachers, corrected them. And I was just appalled by it..and you know, that never happened at Lincoln. I mean, that would never happen at Lincoln."
