Country School: One Room - One Nation

Country School: One Room - One Nation

From immigration issues in early schools to the controversial demise of their widespread use in the 1950s and 1960s, “Country School” combines visually stunning images of a myriad of restored and decaying buildings - including one designed by Frank Lloyd Wright - with surprising, humorous and heartwarming stories from former teachers and students. More than just nostalgia, “Country School” also delves into the dark side of the one-room school experience and dispels the myths behind the revered institution that helped bind a young nation together.

Powerful commentary from one-room school historians and writers provides insight into lessons learned from the school days and school ways of yesteryear.

Following the film Garfield Eckberg will present a brief overview of the District 6 School building and the restoration efforts of Friends of District 6. Runtime approx. 72 minutes. Appropriate for all audiences.

May 3, 7 p.m. District 6 Schoolhouse (located on Highway 22 near the junction of Highway 111 near New Sweden) FREE.
