Report cards

A five part series of a journalist/historian tracking down the owners of old report cards he found marked for trash. Most of the ones discussed are from a sewing trade school from the 1920s. It's pretty amazing seeing what became of these people and experiencing their timeline. My favorite story is the one of Mary Meyer.

I feel like my report cards would be rather boring compared to the trade school report cards. I don't even remember much about mine except I always thought it was crap that my gym grade always pulled down my GPA. Except for that glorious year I was in the Band gym class with Mr. Spangler. Just a bunch of fellow woodwinders and percussionists playing floor hockey and capture the flag in the most non-judgmental high school period ever experienced.
