Winesburg Middle School excerpt



“Humboldt was looking forward to continuing his education. He wanted to learn more about the world outside of Winesburg, but then an odd thing happened on what would have been his first day of ninth grade. On that day, Humboldt was escorted out of Winesburg Middle School by the principal, Mr. Tendergast, who kindly explained to him that Amish children were not required to attend school past eighth grade. Mr. Tendergast then gave Humboldt a kindly principalian shove in the back and slammed the school’s heavy door behind him.”
