“Educational theory is translated into practice as one school attempts to give its children a rich educational experience.”
Teachers College, Columbia University (1939)
This film documents how education and schooling broaden and enrich the lives of youngsters in the rural area who attend school in the village. The film also highlights the lessons the students are taught in social development and etiquette. It also shows how people in the community can contribute to the students' learning of the history of the village and surrounds they live in, specifically to the history of the Native Americans who once lived there.
