Greetings from the desk of: O=MC4, Orschstaffer/Principal, a School Project:

This is a Userpage not to be confused with the article One-room school. It must be noted that One-room school has been redirected from One room schoolhouse which is the primary subject[1] of this Schoolhouse[2]. It is the intention of this School Project[3] to differentiate the two subjects and coordinate a meaningful learning experience while improving the scope and functionality of the One room schoolhouse[4]. Historical buildings will be the first aspect and will expand upon the One-room school article along with the preservation of these particularly educational historic buildings[5]. The second aspect of the One room schoolhouse will be the functionality and purpose of the one room schoolhouse which will focus on the historical functions, purposes and individual concepts of the local one room schoolhouse. The third aspect of the One room schoolhouse will be the demise of such schoolhouses and the advance of the public school system under the oversight of government. The fourth aspect will highlight the return of the one room schoolhouse in philosophy and present day use and may culminate in various[6] points of view(WP:POV),(WP:NPOV), (WP:COI), regarding the reasons why certain individuals wish to leave the public school system in favor of private schools and especially those which go by the moniker of "the one room schoolhouse".

The Schoolhouse focuses on one room schoolhouses of the world. Old Schoolhouse, Haskayne situated at the junction of Black-A-Moor lane with School Lane, this old schoolhouse dated 1802, served the farming communities of Downholland and Haskayne. Founded long before the Education Act of 1870, in the early days the children had to pay a small amount to their teacher towards her stipend and for the slates and chalks that was provided for them. The earliest recorded teachers are Catherine Mawdsley and her daughter Eliza Yates, who followed her mother into the post of headmistress in the 1850s. The old schoolhouse was replaced by a larger building in 1890 which itself has now been replaced by a modern building partly funded by the Scarisbrick family, lords of the manor. The two older buildings are now both private residences.
