The Amish School (revised)
by Sara E. Fisher, an Old Order Amish woman who taught a one-room schoolhouse for seven years, and Rachel K. Stahl. This is Sara's fascinating insider's view of a typical Amish school. Includes Diary of an Amish Schoolgirl.
This book has sold more than 50,000 copies in earlier editions. The Old Order Amish believe that school prepares children for the Amish way of life, for the responsibilities of adulthood, and for eternity. Most communities (especially the Lancaster Settlement) conduct their own schools, usually taught by Amish teachers.
