Jacobsmeyer, Donald J.
To provide information on characteristics of rural and small schools in Region VII of the U.S. Department of Education, this profile presents selected demographic data on schools in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska. A narrative section discusses the purpose of the report, definitions of rural and nonmetropolitan classifications, percentages of rural and metropolitan enrollments in the states, racial/ethnic characteristics of the nonmetropolitan schools, distribution of federal education discretionary grants, and several issues (finance, teacher recruitment and maintenance, diseconomies of scale) affecting rural schools in the region. The reference section details sources and raw figures for the data presented in the narrative, and includes maps of the nonmetropolitan and Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSA) within the four states.
