This is a thought-provoking, photo-illustrated picture book about 19th-century and early 20th-century education. From log schools to frame and brick schools, the text describes how rules organized school districts, how teachers were recruited, how lessons were taught, what classroom furnishings were used, and how consolidation of schools brought about changes. An elementary teacher since the 1970s, the author uses the last chapters to tell how schools in the past compare to schools today and deal with issues of school reform. (144pp. illus. hardcover. Author, 1999.)
