Good Morning America Interview
A three man, one woman crew from ABC-TV's Good Morning America show descended upon this quiet little community today to film a segment for the show at Terlingua School.
Mark Shaw, Good Morning America, headed the team investigating the school and its unique situation. The segment, prompted by an article in the November 1977 issue of American Airline's "American Way" flight magazine, will compare one-room schools and the divided, graded schools in larger cities, will deal with the quality of education received in a one-room school, and will examine the feelings and problems of mothers who drive long, sometimes hard miles, to get their and other's children to school.
Mark Shaw filmed interviews with Mrs. Barbara Ellington, one mother who helps translate children and several children to probe their feelings about attending Terlingua School.
The crew recorded several aspects of life at Terlingua School, including their flag raising ceremony and the children playing at recess.
