Excerpt from Child Welfare in Kentucky: An Inquiry by the National Child Labor Committee for the Kentucky Child Labor Association and the State Board of Health

In the mountains the whole family must work hard to maintain even a low standard of living, and primitive homes, polluted water, disease, poor schools and loss of land ownership are common. The present development of the rich natural resources of this section by outside capital is accompanied in a few instances by constructive social service that will undoubtedly have a marked beneficial effect, and the settlements, special schools and other agencies that have been at work here for years have contributed in no small degree to the improvement of conditions within their areas of in?uence, but the task of raising the standard of life in this great region is beyond the reach of such limited individual undertakings.

In the Blue Grass region farm tenancy is on the increase and the children of the tenants bear an unduly large share of the burden this condition imposes, while others more fortunately situated enjoy unusual advantages. Even in this favored region there is indifference to the development of rural schools.

In parts of the western section, isolation and the consequent absence of community spirit hold back the growth of good schools, roads, housing, water supply, health and land ownership; on the other hand, the encouragement of co-operative marketing and community clubs by county farm agents is hopeful because the farmer's progress, and therefore the welfare of most of Kentucky's children, depends upon organisation.
