Synopsis : Offering a glimpse at the values that built this country, The One-Room Schoolhouse is a poignant, engaging, beautiful and heart-warming tribute to an enduring slice of Americana.
From 1750 through about 1950, the one-room schoolhouse was a common fixture on the American landscape, with as many as 200,000 in total across the land. Today, approximately 450 one-room schoolhouses are still in use.
Despite the decline in numbers, it remains a powerful presence, and its mere mention conjures up feelings of warmth and nostalgia for a long ago time. The One-Room Schoolhouse pays homage to this American icon and is a tour of these structures still standing, detailing the best examples from the forty-eight contiguous states. Exploring working schools, some in existence for more than 100 years, schools restored as historic museums, and schools converted into private residences, The One-Room Schoolhouse touches and inspires us by sharing "conversations" with past and present one-room schoolhouse teachers.
