Country School: One Room - One Nation is fast becoming a resource for one-room school house preservation efforts from New York to California.
The Emmy-nominated documentary not only has a fan base of former country school students, teachers and historians, but receives requests from groups around the country working to generate interest in saving their own school houses.
"The documentary opens with a schoolhouse in the early stages of preservation," said director Kelly Rundle. "And, as you learn about the significance of one-room school history, you see various examples of country school restoration success stories along the way."
"When we started production on Country School: One Room - One Nation we did not foresee the impact the documentary would have on preservation projects," said producer Tammy Rundle. "We are thrilled that the film is inspiring these kinds of efforts. It's really wonderful."
