Charlie was a pupil at Bessie Street School and was in Ken Barlow's 3B class. In May 1973, Ken gave a lesson on the United States of America in which he gave his viewpoint of the Wounded Knee incident and the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre that preceded it. He somehow linked the events to the recently concluded Vietnam War. Although Charlie and his fellow pupil Kevin made some intelligent points, Ken later admitted to Faye-Marie Schofield, the wife of Ena Sharples's American great-nephew, that he knew very little about the country himself beyond what he saw on television. A teacher herself, she volunteered to come to his school and give a talk to his class.
The next day, she stood before the class and gave a successful talk.
