A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM OF EDUCATION FOR RURAL CHILDREN AND YOUTH.
DAWSON, HOWARD A.
LARGER SCHOOL DISTRICTS USUALLY HAVE BETTER INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS. TO HAVE A COMPREHENSIVE PROGRAM, HOWEVER, IT IS NECESSARY TO HAVE PROGRAM GUIDES THAT MEET THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS. THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SHOULD EMPHASIZE READING, WRITING, ARITHMETIC, AND SOCIAL STUDIES. A FLEXIBLE PROGRESSION OF GENERAL EDUCATION, COLLEGE PREPARATION, AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION SHOULD CONSTITUTE THE HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM. A SCHOOL-COMMUNITY PROGRAM WOULD INCLUDE ADULT EDUCATION, LIBRARY SERVICES, RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES, AND SUMMER PROGRAMS. THE ADMINISTRATION SHOULD ALSO PROVIDE SERVICES WHICH WOULD HELP THE TEACHERS, STUDENTS, AND ADMINISTRATION. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT (SEPTEMBER 1963). (JS)
