Product Description

BOARDING ROUND

For much of the 19th century, most school teachers were short-term itinerant workers who moved from one district to the next with the changing academic seasons. Room and board was routinely offered as part of the teacher's 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 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. Numerous first-hand accounts are provided to paint a vivid picture of the experience of most 19th century school teachers: the life-style known as “Boarding Round.”
