The Improvement of District School Buildings in New Hampshire

Authors

  • James L. Garvin

Abstract

The schools that first appeared in the Colonial Era and continued to shape life in New Hampshire arose largely from legislation that laid a foundation for life in an agrarian society. In this historical analysis, James Garvin compares and contrasts laws that were passed from c. 1800 to c. 1920 to provide quality of public schooling throughout the state. Garvin’s analysis is useful for anyone who wants to learn how ubiquitous institutions like school districts and school boards came into being. New Hampshire’s efforts to improve education under a system of local school districts and one-room schoolhouses mirror similar initiatives in all the New England states and beyond.
