Connor, Desmond M.; Magill, Dennis W.
As one of several research studies which have investigated rural socio-economic conditions in conjunction with Canadian attempts to aid development, this study examined the role and potential of education in the rural development process. Surveys were conducted of the educational needs and aspirations of both children and adults. Conclusions and recommendations of the study were directed at offering skill training for adults and reducing the high dropout rate of youth in this rural area. (DK)
