The book addresses the whys and wherefores of the one-room school. It's a good resource for teachers, and very few books make comparisons of back then to nowadays. Readers remember past times and how society was close-knit and provided more community support. -- Fort Wayne Indiana Journal Gazette, January 27, 2000
From the Author
My Mother began her teaching career in a one-room school in Williams County, Ohio. My own fourth grade students delight in learning about the past, and I often take them to nearby restored schools to re-enact the one-room school era. I began doing research and taking pictures of one-room schools in Northwest Ohio. Then, I became fascinated by the remnants of early education along country roads during my frequent travels elsewhere. Since families today are sometimes missing the close-knit community life which surrounded early schools, I began to consider some of the positive things one-room schools had offered to children.
