The opportunity to attend high school was not always available until the twentieth century. In rural areas particluarly, people attended one room schools until age fifteen or so, and that was the end of their formal education. The school year was short and the curriculum limited.

New School Proposed.
Movement to Form New District in Charleston.

More or less of a dissatisfied feeling has prevailed among the taxpayers of the south end of Charleston township since the new High School was established at Dartt Settlement, owing to the fact that the new school was not available for serving the children in the south district. As a result a public meeting was held at the Grange Hall in cherry Flats last Friday afternoon to consider the advisability of building a new High School that will accommodate the children of that section of the township.

The meeting was well attended, over 100 taxpayers being present, and considerable enthusiasm was manifested in the proposed new High School. Leonard Miller presided as chairman and Milo Patterson was chosen secretary. Brief talks were made by Messrs. Ben F. Edwards, Thomas Lewis, Joseph Ashley, Arthur Dockstader, Floyd Haverly, Sherman Ridge and others. The consensus of opinion was that the country districts should be provided with better schools and that they should be located at points accessible by the largest number of pupils without regard to township lines.

The plan proposed is to form an independent school district by taking part of the south end of Charleston township, not now served by the Dartt Settlement High School, and a small part of Bloss township now included in Covington school district, and a part of Covington township. A map showing the two townships and the portion to be set aside was prepared and explained by D. H. Ford.

A petition will be presented at the May term of court, praying that a commission be appointed to view the proposed new school district and recommend for or against its adoption. The petition has been signed by the following:  E. C. Howell, D. H. Ford, J. D. Patterson, L. M. Miller, M. F. Patterson, H. E. Smith, C. L. Bowen, J. R. Ford, Floyd Zimmer, D. D. Jones, D. B. Rose, J. F. Haverley, P. W. Smith, D. N. Smith, M. A. Thompson, J. N. Jackson, R. D. Jones, John Blanchard, G. S. Parsons, Thomas L. Jones, J. G. Haverley, C. J. Parsons, A. C. Dyke, B. F. Edwards, Fred Ingalls, Henry J. Davis, Leon Simerson, D. A. Whiting, J. C. Blanchard, W. R. March, W. H. Patterson, N. C. Brewster, G. W. Smith, W. H. Kelsey, C. A. Scott, V. P. Hall, and John A. Bowen.
