The good old day..........
Where I grew up, in backwoods Pennsylvania, the first four grades were in a "Classic" two story "Red" schoolhouse. There was one teacher on the first floor taught first and second grade. And one teacher on the second floor taught third and fourth grade.
The "BIG" deal was that the fourth grade boys took turns burning the school trash, in the burn barrel after recess.
From sixth grade on the boys could take their rifle or shotgun to school on the school bus, and leave it in their locker or homeroom coat closet. Then you would have the bus driver let you off on the other side of the mountain, and hunt your way home.
I don't think "Overlord" would approve.......today.
