susan - in responding the the article about a typical school day, I want to add some information from my interviews with students of the Indian Stream Schoolhouse in Pittsburg, NH who attended in the early 1900's. It seems that the first thing in the morning the teacher conducted a health status on each student, reviewing the cleanliness of hands and face. Those students whom didn't pass inspection were sent to the wash basin to tidy up for the school day. It also gave the teacher an opportunity to keep track of health problems to report to the nurse who came monthly to the schoolhouse. Just thought I would add this tidbit that I learned from interviewing a handful of former students who attended a one room schoolhouse in the early 1900's. I was impressed by this public health inspection method in a very rural community.
