Mary Antin described education as “the essence of American opportunity, the treasure that no thief could touch, not even misfortune or poverty.” Since 1635, when the first town-supported school was established, America’s public education system has come a long way.
The 30¢ Schoolhouse stamp pictures Morris Township School No. 2 in Devil's Lake, North Dakota. The school was in used from 1894 to 1960 and has since served as the Morris Town Hall.
