Children and teens attending Delaware schools in the 1930s and 40s had a very different experience than students today. From reviewing public archives and historic photos, one thing that stuck out to me was how much more time was spent on real-world skills that could help prepare youngsters for the job force. Take a peek into the past and you’ll see how much things have changed in less than a century.

We’ve come a long way, but many aspects of Delaware schools remain the same. Do you or any of your family members remember what school was like during this time period? Tell us in the comments!
