Full caption reads as follows: Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. All of the children here are from Old-Order Amish homes. The boys standing in the front of the room are sixth graders. This is their recitation period. Note that some of the girls are trying to hide their faces, while the boys appear to be more or less unconcerned. Note also that the oldest girl (nearest camera) does not braid her hair. This is in accordance with church disciplines.
