Old school and class photos from past decades

The first public school in the United States was founded in New England in the early 17th century. But the history of education is much longer than that, ranging back to pre-history when elders taught the skills needed for living to the young of their society.

This collection of old photos shared by the community is of school & class photos ranging from universities to grade schools to Sunday Schools, dating back to the mid 18th century, showing students, teachers, and the schools themselves.
