Out of many, one. From immigration issues in early schools to the controversial demise of their widespread use in the 1950s and 1960s, "Country School: One Room - One Nation" combines visually stunning images of restored and decaying buildings with surprising, humorous, and heartwarming stories from former one-room school teachers and students. More than just nostalgia, "Country School" also delves into the dark side of the one-room school experience and dispels the myths behind the revered institution that helped bind a young nation together. Powerful commentary from historians provides insight into lessons learned from the school days and school ways of yesteryear. Multilingual classes, guns in school, and the pain of closure remind US that the dramatic one-room school story continues to provide insight today.
