A rural school in Saskatchewan.

The Dominion Lands Act set aside school land within each township. As the homesteaders flooded into the prairies these lands would be used to build one room school houses. It was these schools that were used to meet the educational needs of the immigrant children. The rural schools formed the backbone of the Saskatchewan education system for many years. The 'surveying' section under 'Steps to A Homestead' has more information about the lands set aside for schools.
