Such are the changes a century has made in Palm Beach County education. You can learn about these changes and more in Palm Beach County Schools: The First 100 Years, authored by former Palm Beach Post editorial writer Bill McGoun and just published by the school district.
Read about a system once divided by race and how it became one, about Guy Metcalf, the star-crossed promoter-politician, about the women who broke the gender line in public office as soon as they could vote, about the superintendents and school boards who presided over all the changes and the people who campaigned for those changes.
