What a day!

On this last day of the Country School Association of America         conference, we spent from 8 to 6:30 on a bus driving about the local area of New Hampshire visiting no less than nine – yes – NINE – one room country schools!

Just amazing.  This is my first time at this conference, where I presented my paper on 19th century children, and honestly I was a little worried that I’d be spending the three days listening to workshops on how to renovate the things.  I was completely wrong!

What a great group of folks – academic folks who’ve published books, folks who curate, volunteer at, run, organize, own, and otherwise take care of country one room schools, a park ranger, folks who know all there is to know about desks, slates, and African American schools – and so much more!  It’s a great mix of scholars!

Here’s just a few pictures of the schools we visited today.  I’ll post more in the near future (now I need some rest)!
