The real reason behind the spring break at school may surprise you. At one time most Georgians lived on farms. In the early 1900s when compulsory school attendance was first required by law, families still needed children to help with the necessary farm work in the spring. School calendars were set to accommodate that need. Twelve year old Dusty Dunn demonstrates how he helps his father and grandfather with the farm chores. Farm work is year round, but because of school obligations, Dusty can only work on weekends, holidays, and summertime.
