How Was School Today? explores the richly complex school experiences of Katie, a fifth-grader, in a very small school that educates children of varying ages and academic capabilities together. Katie's experiences provide an opportunity to wonder about the school experiences of any child. How Was School Today? goes inside a world about which parents typically know very little, and about which teachers may wish to learn more.
