Previously, education was reserved for the wealthy. There were also a few smaller schools for parents who chose to send their kids. For example, Huck Finn was not required to attend school, but chose to partly because his dad did not want him to. Although, as the 1900s came closer, more public schools were becoming more numerous and states were beginning to require school attendance. By 1920, all of the states required students from ages 8 to 14 to attend school for part of the year. These schools were one-roomed school houses with classes ranging in all ages. Kids walked to school everyday, most walked around four to five miles round trip. Students learned with limited school supplies, sometimes only a slate, chalk, and a few educational books. School discipline, however, could be rather strict. Teachers were allowed to smack kids with rulers and other objects. Another difference from today’s schooling is the lunches. There was no such thing as a school lunch program, so students usually carried their lunch to school in metal

At age ten, I left everything behind in China to start a new life with my parents in United States. It was not long before I realized that I was, in many ways, different from all the other kids in school. Gradually, I became less confident and more isolated.
