Concerted Services in Training and Education: An Evaluation of Developmental Change. Advance Report.
Griessman, B. Eugene, Ed.
In the Fall of 1963, President Kennedy created the Rural Development Committee (RDC) and charged it with the responsibility of providing leadership and guidance to the several Federal departments and agencies responsible for rural development program functions. To help find solutions to problems facing the rural population, the RDC proposed a task force be created to explore the feasibility of developing pilot projects in three selected rural areas. These projects were to be designed to make use of the combined resources of all appropriate Federal departments and agencies, including their respective cooperating state agencies. Thus concerted services projects were established in Minnesota, Arkansas, and New Mexico with the strategy to minimize the deleterious effects of technological change upon rural communities. This advance report is derived from detailed evaluations of these three projects, available separately as ED 042 899, ED 042 904 and ED 042 905. (Author/JS)
