    There was usually a “dunce” in the corner of the room which basically meant a stupid person that misbehaved or got something wrong.

    School was horrid years ago because you would get called a dunce (means stupid person)when you didn`t really do any thing wrong!

    Children used to have silk chalk boards to write on because teachers thought that chalk boards were cheaper that paper, at that time they also had to spit on their boards to clean off any mistakes.

    The boy in the corner with a D on a party hat is the class “dunce” and you would have to sit in the corner on a small bench and look at the wall and don’t make a sound.

    The children had to sit on chairs that didn’t have anything that you can lean back on. They had to sit on stalls.

    The boy wearing D on its head means dunce and dunce is a stupid person.

    They used to have a picture of king henry the v on the wall.

    The children in 1915 had to write with an inker but they had to be careful not to make mess or a mistake. 🙂

    Naughty children wore a hat saying Dunces are d for “dunce” .

    Dunce means stupid. When some children got a mistake they would sit in the corner with a hat saying dunce.
