Mills County School Teachers




Rural, Town and Consolidated Schools

       Vacation time for our boys and girls has ended for this year except the Thanksgiving and Christmas times. Every town school and most of the country districts begin this week. Seven of our former rural schools have lost their identity by reason of consolidated schools. Three because of lack of pupils and one because the burned down building has not been rebuilt. One school reports no teacher as yet. A good number of the rural schools will have teachers who are beginners in the work. One noticeable thing among the rural teachers is that 13 have the title, Mrs. There will be one male teacher in the rural schools. Last year the average pay of rural teachers in the county was $93.71 per month. In the town schools the average compensation for females was $129.64 per month and for males $221.36 per month.
        The following are the rural teachers for the fall term of 1922.
