The next title in the Would You Believe series charts the growth
and development of education and learning throughout history.
Readers will learn about the often painful and frequently
distasteful educational practices that our ancestors employed, and
explore some unusual teaching methods used today. Find out about
the Neolithic cave school, the English charity boarding school in
Dickensian times, where pupils shared their boarding rooms with
chickens and turkeys, and the one-room school in Nebraska where the
handful of pupils ride to school on horses.
