Description: 

Apparently there is one school building for all the white children in Jefferson: the 10-year-old Chick Mallison attends "grammar school" (197) in the same place where Linda Snopes is a high school junior (215). Wallstreet Panic enters kindergarten here, where he meets his second grade teacher to whom he later proposes in her classroom, the "empty room itself smelling of chalk and anguished cerebration and the dry inflexibility of facts" (153). All the text says about the location of the building is that it is too "far away" from the Square for Gavin to hear its dismissal bell (217). There is no mention in the novel of the school which the Negro children would have attended.
