One-Teacher Schools in the States of the Old Confederacy.
Southern Education Reporting Service, Nashville, TN.
The interval from 1930 to 1965 witnessed the disappearance of virtually all one- and two-teacher schools in 17 Southern and border states. Isolation and transportation difficulties prevent further consolidation of small schools in many of these states. A number of small schools still in existence are located in hospitals and correctional institutions, and hence are inaccessable to the general public. The advantages to be gained in terms of good equipment, well-trained teachers and well-kept buildings far outweigh the objections of impersonal treatment which are often voiced by opponents of consolidation. Consolidation usually allows increased individual attention plus all the advantages necessary in effectively educating the student of today. (DA)
