Cooperative Action on the Educational Problems of Appalachia.
Achilles, Charles M.
Institutions of higher education in Appalachia need to examine their role as the primary leaders of educational change in terms of solving the educational problems of the region. The uniqueness of the Appalachian region (which might be characterized as a closed system), coupled with identifiable regional needs, should be conducive to a recognition of appropriate actions which colleges and universities might take to assume their expected roles. The colleges and universities located in the region may utilize various Federal grants and programs to assist them in this effort. With the use of change-manipulation procedures (e.g., bypass or multi-event planning), higher education could join resources with other agencies to accomplish greater educational change related to needs of Appalachia. In addition, there are numerous ways in which higher education and state departments can cooperate in experimentation and the development of new ideas. (AL)
