Schoolyard at Skyline Farms

Schoolyard at Skyline Farms

Description
The Resettlement Administration was created in an effort to curb rural poverty among farmers. It purchased small, economically unviable farms and set up government-monitored cooperative homestead communities. These farm families received educational aid along with supervision. A community called Skyline Farms was set up in the Cumberland Mountains region as one such effort of a cooperative farmstead. In this image, Mydans captures some of the children playing in the yard outside the multigrade school.
