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.
