The Impact of Population Change on Rural Community Life. The School System.
Klietsch, Ronald G.
Being 1 of 4 publications dealing with the effects of population decline on rural Iowa counties, this study was published in 1962 as part of a larger study done under the auspices of the North Central Region Subcommittee on Population Research. The effects of out-migration on school systems in Greene County are described, and school history, movements toward school reorganization, enrollment effects, student-teacher ratios, and problems noted from interviews conducted with personnel in 3 school systems are discussed. Data tables provide statistics for factors studied, and a selected bibliography is presented for the benefit of those who may wish to gain better appreciation of the regional population situation and the results of migration upon counties with differing industrial and agricultural conditions.
