“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it.”
― Albert Einstein
Want to see a typical schoolhouse for most of rural America for the better part of two centuries? Brace yourself:
That thing is, no exaggeration, smaller than most garden sheds I’ve seen. I went to high school in what used to be a WWII weather station, graduating class of 60 students max. Tiny by most suburban measurements (Jeff, for example had a graduating class bigger than my entire school combined). And even I can’t even wrap my head around school in a closet.
