Description: 

Gavin Stevens refers to "Yoknapatawpha Consolidated" in his listing of schools, this one distinct from Jefferson High (172). Typically a 'consolidated' school serves a sparsely populated area, where a number of grades are consolidated into one building - often even one room. The story doesn't provide any clear indication for the location of "Yoknapatawpha Consolidated," but in the earlier short story "Two Soldiers" (1942), Pete Grier graduates from the Consolidated in Frenchman's Bend, so we are locating it in that part of Yoknapatawpha, and further from Jefferson than the actual bend in the road, according to the way Pete locates the school in other story in which he appears, "Shall Not Perish" (1943).
