Abandoned architecture seems to be a popular subject on the blog. I look at these old schools and reflect on how broken our modern system is. Just because one room school houses were humble in appearance doesn’t mean they weren’t effective. My mother attended elementary school in a one room school house in Alaska. She went on to get a degree in Mathematics and be elected to the position of mayor. Why do we continue to embrace modern dysfunction in America, while scorning our past?
