High School Teacher
Rodriguez is referring to Hogart's book, The Uses of Literacy, in which mention of scholarship boy was made. Rodriguez recognized himself in Hogart's descriptions of scholarship boy, helping him to understand his own experiences. Rodriguez made good grades, memorized and regurgitated information, but he never learned how to form opinions or think for himself. Like scholarship boy, Rodriguez grew nostalgic for his past because he had always denied it.
