From the 1790s to the 1960s, the one-room school was a venerable institution in Maritime Canada. In this fully illustrated book, former teacher George Peabody examines this early form of education, bringing the facts and figures to life with dozens of photographs and anecdotes from those who studied or taught at these schools.
