Fourth Wall Films in Moline, Illinois is pleased to announce a new historical documentary film project tentatively titled Country School: One Room - One Nation.
Country schools took rough-hewn pioneers and multilingual immigrants and transformed them into a literate and patriotic new nation.
Whether personally, or through a parent or grandparent, the country school as an American architectural icon, is as imprinted on our perception of the nation’s early history as the log cabin and the general store.
From the first schools in new states to the demise of their widespread use in the 1950s and 1960s, Country School: One Room - One Nation tells the dramatic true story of Midwestern country schools and their impact yesterday and today.
We need your help to bring Country School: One Room - One Nation to the screen. Your generous contributions will be acknowledged in the finished film's onscreen credits and on the web.
