In 1889 there were 44 organized school districts on the county.

Most of the school terms were from 6-10 months.  However a few did have a school year only being 3-4 months.

Teachers were paid a salary of $30-$40 a month.  Two-thirds of the teachers were female as ladies get along better with little children.

School taxes were more cheerfully paid than the other taxes in the county.
