John Lennon’s report card at age 15: ‘He has too many of the wrong ambitions’

Friday would have been John Lennon’s 80th birthday, and anybody who has read this blog long enough knows that it is a moment that I would attempt to mark with the right material. Thanks to historian Michael Beschloss for providing it.

Below, embedded in a Beschloss tweet, is a picture of a report card that the former Beatle — who was murdered in New York City in 1980 — got when he was 15 while attending Quarry Bank High School in Liverpool, England.
