Sociological Considerations, Leflore County School District, Mississippi. Reports of Consultants and Advisory Specialists under Planning Grant, Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
Boyer, Roscoe A.; Garza, Joseph M.
A survey of rural life in Leflore County, Mississippi, was made so that rural youth problems could be defined in behavioral terms in an attempt to meet their needs. Data were collected in 1967-68 from 1,496 Negro heads-of-households filling out a questionnaire. The information was grouped into 5 areas: family, physical facilities, health, financial state, and education of the respondents and their households. With each area discussed, tables are presented. Major findings and general recommendations relating to the sociological factors conclude the first section of the report. The second section, reporting some educational implications of the sociological factors, recommends that (1) a system of pre-school training should be immediately instituted and (2) a parent education program is a grave necessity. This work was prepared under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AN)
