With Unfailing Dedication
Rural Teachers in the War YearsBook - 2001
The severe shortage of teachers brought on by WWII meant that teenagers -- some with little or no training, were placed in charge of country schools. Trained teachers who had retired or left to raise families were pressed back into service, forced to cope with isolation, loneliness, poor living, and poor working conditions. This is a fascinating and enlightening look at this almost unbelievable period in Canadian history.
