PART II: History of Education and Schools in Middlesex
PART I: Harold Domanski submitted a transcript of an interview (Rumney History 1970s) with Barbara Buckley and Tim Hayward regarding the Rumney School in the 1970′s. According to Harold, “The interview plays out as a wonderful story, about and for our town, flowing well, and full of first-hand information and some humorous anecdotes from 40+ years ago. The people of Middlesex will surely enjoy and appreciate Tim and Barbara’s look-back through time, as encouraged by the interview talents and lively efforts of Leah Erlbaum, regarding one of the town’s more critical and controversial historical periods.”
PART II: Harold continues to share his accounts of education in Middlesex. He states, “I recently contacted Peter Smith, the missing committee member at our October 5, 2013, interview with Barbara Buckley and Tim Hayward, when we discussed the tumultuous years of educational change of 40 years ago, and the vision and hard work of our forbears that helped lead us to the Rumney School of today. Peter is now living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he continues his work to study and improve public education. I am happy to present thoughts expressed by Peter – on the interview, and on the educational turnaround that began in Middlesex in 1971.
