Can any one help??

The following statement was found in a document W. Scott (to lease) S. Scott: "which said Section was "reserved as school lands in lieu of the sixteenth section" then does the land become owned by the lessee who eventually purchases the land?

16h Section land can never be owned by a private individual. The land is used to fund schools. Only caveat to that is if you can flip an in-kind property in place of the 16th section. Thank you but I learned this awhile ago after some in dept research on a school property.
