  • Country School: One Room - One Nation

    From immigration issues in early schools to the controversial demise of their widespread use in the 1950s and 1960s, "Country School" combines visually stunning images of a myriad of restored and decaying buildings - including one designed by Frank Lloyd Wright -with surprising, humorous and heartwarming stories from former 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.
