Country Kids, Country School

Country Kids, Country School

Until the opening of the Washington and Lincoln Schools in 1920, basic education was available at 10 one- or two-room schools. With so much work to do at home, not all students were able to complete the eighth grade, as indicated by the disparity of ages of these students attending the Maunu School in 1904. The Maunu School, at the corner of today's Canosia and Forstie Roads, was one of three country schools that burned in the 1918 Fire. The tragedy led to a 1919 referendum wherein township voters approved construction of the Washington and Lincoln Schools and establishment of a consolidated school district.
