Description: This is a research paper written by Cynthia Lee Rogers for an American History Class at Marfa High School. It describes the schools in the Big Bend area from 1880s -1940. The early pioneers began a school system in Marfa around 1885 with a one room school house and one teacher. Other schools included public, private and parochial. Some wealthy families hired governesses to tutor their children. Private school were often created by neighboring ranchers who would hire a teacher for their collective children and those of their ranch hands. Some early schools along the river were in areas of unrest so teachers had to bring guns to school. Fort Davis had an inter-racial school for a few years. The paper includes many pictures of pioneer teachers on the frontier.
