New Era One Room School

   "The most far-reaching change in West Virginia's school system since the advent of public schools was effected by legislation in 1933 substituting county units for district units.  To provide equality of opportunity between children attending urban and rural schools, the new law reduced the administrative units from 397 to 55, or one for each county, and provided a guarantee of State financial aid to each county in proportion to the total amount of money necessary to keep its schools open during a full term each year."
