In 1912, Anna Estelle Arnold self-published her first book, Civics and Citizenship. That same year her book was accepted as a textbook to be taught in Kansas public schools and Kansas granted equal voting rights to women. Arnold was an author and educator who championed the education of young people to value the relationship between government and people’s everyday lives.

Want to see the kinds of school books your grandfather were reading in 1912?
Ever wonder what rules your mom and dad had to follow when they were on the bus to school?
Want to see what “distance learning” classes were like before the Internet? (Hint: it used the radio).
The State Library presents a collection of classroom manuals, teacher resources, state committee reports, and yes, even school bus regulations that all help to show what going to school was like, “way back when.”
