The one room school has always fascinated me. How one teacher could provide intellectual stimulation to such a variety of ages, simultaneously, simply amazes me.
The school house generally accomodated grades 1-8. At one time, the person having an eighth grade education was qualified to be a substitute teacher.
Another interesting fact is that most one room schools doubled as a church. Hard to imagine in today's society.
