An Agenda for Research and Development on Rural Education.
Office of Educational Research and Improvement (ED), Washington, DC.
Addressing the need for research on rural schools, the Federal Interagency Committee on Education (FICE), Subcommittee on Rural Education, identified six priority topics representing the most compelling concerns of rural education. This pamphlet serves as a stimulus for researchers to study rural education issues and share their findings with the U.S. Department of Education's Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC). The six priority topics are: (1) the effectiveness of rural schools including defining the factors that describe and affect the rural community, such as geographic isolation, economy of scale, and variability in culture, economy, and social environment; (2) curricular provisions in rural schools such as individualized instruction, design and implementation, cooperation with private sector development, access, and adult literacy improvement; (3) school and community partnerships; (4) human resources for rural schools focusing on recruitment, retention, professional development, administration, and supervision; (5) the use of technology in rural schools; and (6) financial support and governance for rural schools. Sample research questions are provided for each topic. Addresses for submitting comments or research and for further information are also included. (KS)
