With Reference to Appalachia. A Collection of Mid-Twentieth-Century Facts and Viewpoints Selected on the Basis of Pertinence to Adult Education in Appalachia.
Seay, Ruth H., Comp.
Data describing conditions, resources, deficiencies, problems, and potentialities in Appalachia are presented as the first step of an evaluative and program-improvement study for the Appalachian Adult Basic Education Demonstration Center. The rationale for this data collection is that an adult education program can be significant only as it relates to the society in which it occurs. Excerpts from the literature on Appalachia have been compiled in the areas of geography, demography, life-style of the people, economic climate, government, health, and education. A time-line accompanies quoted material to emphasize its pertinence to current conditions in the Appalachian area. A bibliography of sources used and an index are appended. (JH)
