For more than 250 years, the one-room school house was the foundation of American education. By 1913, as many as one-half of the country's school children were enrolled in one of our nation's 212,000 one-room schools. These schools were especially popular and successful in the Midwest. In 1918, more than half of America's one-room schools were located in the Midwest and in the Ozarks.
