The next title in the Would You Believe series charts the growth and development of education and learning throughout history. Readers will learn about the often painful and frequently distasteful educational practices that our ancestors employed, and explore some unusual teaching methods used today. Find out about the Neolithic cave school, the English charity boarding school in Dickensian times, where pupils shared their boarding rooms with chickens and turkeys, and the one-room school in Nebraska where the handful of pupils ride to school on horses.
