"The country one room schoolhouse was not just a place for teaching our children. It was also a community center, where neighbors gather for dances, concerts, lectures, debates, political caucuses and worship.
I truly believe that we can build a well-educated, literate America by drawing on the legacy of courage and resourcefulness left us by our pioneer country school teachers.
The restoration of these schoolhouses reminds us of a critical source of our great national strength---a commitment to education for every American. The very real stories that these buildings will tell will inspire us to continue to a proud tradition that will produce more and more stories of hope for our great people."
