One Room, One Teacher
by Roger Wilson and Kathryn Jordan
Covering more than 100 years of history, starting from the beginning of public education in Pennsylvania, the book examines the formation of the South Eastern School District (SESD). In total, eight school districts were consolidated to form the SESD. School districts in Hopewell, East Hopewell, Fawn and Peach Bottom townships united with those in Stewartstown, Cross Roads, Fawn Grove and Delta boroughs.
Supplemented by maps, charts and more than 100 photos, “One Room One Teacher” includes a well-researched history of public education in Pennsylvania and the local area. The 18-page index includes more than 1,400 names. More than 60 schools are highlighted: 45 one-room schools, eight two-room schools, six multi-room schools, and a private school.
