RURAL EDUCATION ON THE WORLD SCENE.
SWANSON, GORDON I.
AN HISTORICAL REVIEW OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF RURAL EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES IS PRESENTED ALONG WITH SYMPTOMS AND DEFINITIONS OF UNDER-DEVELOPED OR DEVELOPING ECONOMIC SYSTEMS. COMMON EDUCATIONAL CHARACTERISTICS ARE DISCUSSED, AND A COMPARISON IS DRAWN BETWEEN THE PROBLEMS THAT MAY BE ENCOUNTERED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATION IN THE UNITED STATES (OR ANY OTHER DEVELOPED COUNTRY) WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATION IN UNDER-DEVELOPED COUNTRIES. SOME POSSIBLE DIRECTIONS FOR RURAL EDUCATION TO TAKE IN THE FURTHER STUDY OF COMMON PROBLEMS ARE SUGGESTED--(1) EDUCATIONAL NEEDS SHOULD BE EXAMINED IN LIGHT OF A COUNTRY'S SOCIETAL DEMANDS AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, (2) ATTEMPTS SHOULD BE MADE TO ENCOURAGE AMERICAN ASSOICATIONS OF RURAL EDUCATION TO SEEK FURTHER OPPORTUNITIES TO BECOME COOPERATORS AND COLLABORATORS WITH RURAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENTS ON THE WORLD SCENE, AND (3) THE ECONOMIC EFFECTS OF EDUCATIONAL INVESTMENT SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, NOT ONLY IN AMERICA BUT ALSO IN DEVELOPING ECONOMIES. THIS SPEECH WAS DELIVERED AT THE ANNUAL AASA LUNCHEON OF THE RURAL DEPARTMENT AND DIVISIONS (WASHINGTON, D.C., FEBRUARY 19, 1962). (DK)
