  1. I was in that gym class at Francis Wyman in the 8th grade in December 72 and remember the hazing incident. Mr Royal was one of the teachers involved, I forget the other teachers name. Royal was known for such behavior. If it was today it would be more than a suspension. Sports has always been over emphasized in the Burlington schools with non-athletic kids made to be outcasts in the 1970s. I fit that description and was either absent or I skipped gym that day. If I had been there it probably would have been two of us shoved in a locker. I won’t mention the kid’s name but out of curiosity, I searched on line and see sadly he passed away at age 59 in 2018.
