One-Room Schoolhouse

Commentator Thomas Huggler tells us about the Loucks School near the town of Mulliken, west of Lansing, Mich. The 144-year old one-room school closed today for the last time. He says the sights and smells remind him of where he went to school. The floors creak, globe fixtures light the room and time stands still.
