DETROIT PUBLIC JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS ABSENCE AND TARDINESS SLIP

c. 1950s or 60s
by Detroit Public Schools


Since there isn't much available ephemera floating around on the internet from the Detroit Public Schools I'm going to date this to the 1950s or 1960s simply from the looks alone.

The (2-63.MLP) note at the bottom could indicate the month and date but I really wouldn't know either way. The one thing I do know is that the days of teaching Latin are long past and maybe not so coincidentally this has not been a boon for the city which now sports ridiculously high drop out rates approaching 75%.
