A Planner's Reference Guide Relating to Socioeconomic Factors Within Appalachia as Applied to Public Education.
Link, A. D.
Due to the tremendous energies and resources focused on bringing about acceptable educational changes in the Appalachian region, it must be assumed that numerous planning processes have been or will be brought into play prior to the accomplishment of such ambitious goals. Educational planners must be thorough and at the same time practical when attempting to design educational change programs. One of the time-consuming tasks for such professionals is the location and assessment of resources. The purpose of this document is to provide useful information or data resources which might be valuable in this regard. To facilitate use of the document, the 90 annotated citations have been categorized into the following areas: (1) delinquency, (2) health services, (3) dropouts, (4) job opportunities, (5) age factors, (6) labor force, (7) population characteristics, (8) resources, (9) disadvantagement, and (10) related documents. Only literature which has been cited in "Research in Education" or which is contained in the ERIC/CRESS local files has been cited. No documents available through the ERIC system after March of 1970 are included. (AL)
