Description The rural school of the mid-19th century was a one-room,one-teacher school in which students of various ages took their lessons. Larger villages might have had an academy, and cities typically had larger schools that enrolled several hundred students. Attendance was voluntary, but a fairly large proportion of children attended school. It is estimated that, in the 1830's, 90% of all non-urban youth in the state attended school at least part-time. A child's school years might be intermittent, especially for older students who often attended in winter and worked the farm during the other seasons. Few students stayed in school past the age of 15.Photographed in Clermont, NY, USA. Composed in Photoshop
