Abstract:

The Miller one-room elementary school located ten miles west of York, Pa., along route 30. It is probably a fallacy to equate education with the number of years spent within the halls of a schoolhouse, particulary when the school year varies from several weeks to several weeks to several months. Students who spend eight, ten or twelve years in school find that they are not prepared for potential employment, nor for the solution of life's knotty problems.
