Declassified: Struggle for Existence (We Used to Eat Lunch Together)
Pickett, Brian
Rethinking Schools, v25 n4 p25-29 Sum 2011
The play, "Declassified: Struggle for Existence (We Used to Eat Lunch Together)," is based on the classic play "Antigone" and was written as part of a college-credit elective the author teaches at Queensborough Community College, geared toward local area high school students. The students were one day away from the scheduled performance of the play they had written about school "reform" and specifically the planned phaseout of New York City's Jamaica High School. However, when the author received an email from administrators barring the performance, a viral protest lets the show go on. (Contains 2 resources.)
