New CHRIEC Rural Schools Web Site

Check out the new web site of the Center for the History of Rural Iowa Education and Culture (CHRIEC) created by staff of the UNI Museums as part of a project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Center makes available diverse resources that support the study of the history of public education in Iowa. Did you know that Iowa had over 12,000 one-room schools? On the web site you will find information about an extensive collection of official records documenting Iowa's rural schools, photographic exhibits, a bibliography of reference materials with links to Internet resources, and descriptions of a rural school textbook collection and school memorabilia. It's all available at http://www.uni.edu/museum/ruralschool/
