Varies by state and by region of state, in large cities there were fine multi story schools with heat, cafeteria's gymnasiums etc etc. The farm routes still had small one and two room schools and FYI when I first came to Florida in the later 1970's, in some public school districts, a bachelors degree was not required to teach full time.<quoted text>
Most teacher tenure acts were passed in the 1920s and 1930s, although the Massachusetts law dates to the 1880s.
All were long before unions had significant interest in public schools.
