Regional Education Agencies.
Appalachian Regional Commission, Washington, DC.
Basic needs of children and youth which cannot be provided by small rural schools could be realized by combining the resources and pupils of a number of local districts. Four types of organization are presented as possibilities for providing cooperative educational services: (1) autonomous districts with line functions; (2) semi-autonomous districts with line functions; (3) semi-autonomous districts without line functions; and (4) non-profit corporations. Strategies required for the establishment of regional service agencies are outlined. Data by county from Appalachian states indicates the median years of school completed for persons 25 years of age and over, and the number of persons enrolled in school by age group. A summary and recommendations are included in additon to a bibliography . (SW)
