The Amish Schools of Indiana: Faith in Education
The fascinating story of the Old Order Amish parochial school movement in Indiana is brilliantly detailed by Stephen Harroff in The Amish School of Indiana . From its beginnings in 1948 through 2002, readers are invited into the school at numerous points, to sit in on classes, school programs, and impromptu celebrations. Harroff delicately preserves the anonymity of his subjects and adheres to the Amish practices concerning posed pictures while making use of over fifty photographs to document the state of Old Order Amish education in Indiana . Harroff, who has a long history of work with the Old Order Amish in Indiana , melds his first-hand experience in the school during his residency to reveal his thorough work.
