Introduction
When native Mexican farmers can no longer make a living off the land, their children migrate to the cities in search of better lives, leaving behind all their culture and traditions. Othón Cuevas Córdova set up rural schools to educate children not only about the rich culture that they’re abandoning, but also about how to make a decent living in rural areas where farming is no longer viable.
