The Little Red Schoohouse

Only in the country....found on one of our exploring days.

It has been said that the essence of teaching is causing another to know. It may similarly be said that the essence of training is causing another to do. Teaching gives knowledge. Training gives skill. Teaching fills the mind. Training shapes the habits. Teaching brings to the child that which he did not have before. Training enables a child to make use of that which is already his possession.

- H. Clay Trumbull, Hints on child training (1890)
