What Were Schools like in the 1960s?

Answer

In the 1960's, many kids walked several miles to and from school and discipline was easily maintained. It was disgraceful to be sent to the principal’s office as parents were always informed of bad behaviour. Kids were expected to do many hours of homework and to come prepared.
