Product Description
For much of the 19th century, most teachers were short-term itinerate workers who moved from one district to the next with the changing seasons. Room and board was routinely offered as part of the teacher�¢ï¿½ï¿½s compensation, but just where would the teacher live? Some communities, at the Annual Town Meeting, would solicit bids from the local people to determine who would provide room and board for the teacher at the least cost to the town. The other, more common approach was for the teacher to stay in the homes of the students, with each family providing accommodations in proportion to the number of students they sent to the school. This was known as �¢ï¿½ï¿½boarding round.�¢ï¿½ï¿½

Here is a selection of stories and firsthand accounts in which teachers share their experiences �¢ï¿½ï¿½boarding round.�¢ï¿½ï¿½
