Abstract: The purpose of this study was to collect and bring together the principle facts and influences relating to the establishment, development, operation and decline of farm-life schools in North Carolina. The study was made by reading histories of education in the state, general histories, published reports, and unpublished reports; and by talking with people who have had some part in the more recent developments of education in North Carolina . . . The writer found that the farm-life schools were a part of, and a continuation of the great revival of education which began with the opening of the twentieth century . . . The Farm-Life School Movement promoted a more practical curriculum in the field of rural education, and was in no way an attempt to specialize education to fit any one group of citizens.
