Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! This week on the National Archives Education page, we’re featuring teachers at work.
This class photo of a teacher posed with her students in front of their sod schoolhouse in Woods County, in the Oklahoma Territory, was taken about 1895. How many students do you count?

It’s the day after Labor Day, which can mean only one thing (well, other than post-vacation malaise): it’s back to school time! We’re dedicating this week’s posts to one of our favorite childhood memories—school lunches. This World War II-era poster from the Records of the Office of Government Reports promotes the adoption of school lunch programs.
