Education Index Page
Prior to the
construction of schools, students were taught in individual homes. The earliest
school buildings were usually a crude log cabin built by the whole community with a
fireplace in one corner and a window in the other to provide proper air circulation.
Students learn the three 'R's,' reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic. In those
days, education was regarded as a luxury, not a necessity, because families were more
concerned with survival than 'book learning.'
