Central Nebraska's Country Schools. Country School Legacy: Humanities on the Frontier.
Grundy, Ernest
Presenting information drawn primarily from interviews and visits to abandoned, operating, and restored country schools in Nebraska, this report is part of the Country School Legacy Project, intended to study the role rural schools played in the history of the frontier and to locate and preserve information related to country schools. The report focuses on six phases of the country school experience: schools as historic sites; schools as community centers; the role of the rural school in Americanizing ethnic groups; curriculum; the role of the teacher; and the future of the country schools. Indicating that Nebraska may be at the forefront in attempting to preserve the rural school tradition, the report describes nearly 30 rural schools that have been restored as museums and the research effort that examined and photographed nearly 100 existing country school buildings that are potential historical sites.
