The following is a calendar of programs and events:
May 18, 7pm - New Hampshire's One-Room Rural Schools: The Romance and the Reality A Humanities to Go Program with Stephen Taylor. Hundreds of one-room schools dotted the landscape of New Hampshire a century ago and were the backbone of primary education for generations of children. Revered in literature and lore, they actually were beset with problems, some of which are little changed today. The greatest issue was financing the local school and the vast differences between taxing districts in ability to support education. Other concerns included teacher preparation and quality, curriculum, discipline, student achievement and community involvement in the educational process. Steve Taylor explores the lasting legacies of the one-room school and how they echo today. At the Warner Town Hall. Call 603-456-2437 or email email@example.com. Funded by NH Humanities.
