Today's picture shows two students in a one room school. The picture was taken in New Mexico in 1943, so I guess the tradition of one room schools was still alive at that time. The truth is that it does not take that much infrastructure to give a child a good education. We home schooled our daughter all the way through, and she had no trouble adapting to college, and in fact graduated college at the top of her class. I think the key to a good education is discipline and high expectations. I am very fortunate that the school where I teach still has both discipline and high expectations. The students thrive in that environment.
