TeacherDID YOU KNOW?
Oldtimers remember when emphasis was placed
on knowing the "3 R's" of education - Reading,
Riting and Rithmetic. It is obvisous spelling
was not emphasized. The importance of education
was realized as early as 1635, with the
founding of the Boston Latin School. In 1642
the Massachusetts Bay Colony passed a law
requiring parents to teach their children
to read. The first public school was established
in Massachusetts in 1647. By 1918 every state
in America had a compulsory school-attendance
law. The solid oak frame, measuring 17 x 17 1/2 inches,
surrounds a school teacher appreciation art
collage. The picture calls to mind the old one-room
school house. The postal service issued
a public education stamp October 1, 1985.
The First Day Cover (envelope) and stamp are
15 years old. Last, but not least, a pewter
"#1 teacher" collectible (whimwham) is made a
focal point of the picture.
