Accessibility to Rural Youth of Different Levels of Schooling. Findings of Research.
Kozakiewicz, Mikolaj
The function of schooling on different levels in the direction of the processes of social mobility which influence the development of rural areas in Poland were studied during 1967-71. Data was collected by means of a network of 35 permanent teacher correspondents, as well as 2 field stations which were operated for 3 years in 2 investigated villages. The areas for which information was provided included attendance of rural youth in various types of schools; dropouts in the rural areas; the level of pupil's knowledge and ability; and schooling retardation and its effects on unequal educational opportunity. Selected conclusions only were presented in this report since reports of the research as a whole are to be published in book form. Trends indicated by the research include the need to (1) strengthen rural schools by eliminating their present dispersion and by opening new, more centralized networks based on bussing, (2) strengthen the rural teaching personnel by raising qualifications and specialization, (3) introduce gradually universal secondary education in city and country, (4) improve the system of student selection, and (5) modernize teaching methods.
