A collection of documents specially printed by the United States government for the administrators and teachers instructing Japanese American schoolchildren at the Rohwer Relocation Center in Arkansas. All of the present report cards, as well as the textbook card belonged to eighth-grade student Keiko Hiramoto, whose teachers filled out her grades for each term. Each teacher's name is also present at the top of each report card, indicating that at least three of her teachers were fellow internees; one of Heiko's parents has also signed the verso of each report card for each term. Heiko's classes included health & physical education, math, English, history, home economics, and science. She was also graded on "citizenship," which is a rather ironic to use to judge students going to school behind barbed wire fences.
