The first teacher was Josef Šoler b. at No. 152 and Klášterec. The school was consecrated on September 12, 1909. Josef Šoler taught here for 3 years in 1912, a new teacher Antonín Kafka, a native of Obříství near Mělník, came here. This progressive teacher, an admirer of Czech Brotherhood, followed the methods of J. A. Komenský in his teaching work. He wanted teaching children to be a game. Therefore, at this school he had placed the children-made and decorative inscription "Workshop of Humanity" instead of "Primary School". Soon, Jedlin toys and figurines were known throughout the country. They traveled around exhibitions. Therefore, in the winter it was housework for adults as well. And for some money, trips were organized. When the so-called minority school was established in the neighboring German village of České Petrovice, children from Jedlina went there. The school in Jedlina existed for 15 years and was abolished in 1923. Teachers of the Jedlina school:
Josef Soler, Ant. Kafka, Karel Mencl.
