This collection of essays on rural education in the United States aims to fill a gap in the educational literature by highlighting the available research on rural schools and their contexts.

The chapters are: (1) "Historical Scholarship in Nineteenth Century Rural Education" (Paul Theobald); (2) "Adult Education and Rural America: An Analysis of Selected Topics and Sources" (Harvey G. Neufeldt, James E. Akenson); (3) "The Rural Education Dilemma As Part of the Rural Dilemma: Rural Education and Economics" (Craig Howley); (4) "Identifying, Recruiting, Selecting, Inducting, and Supervising Rural Teachers" (Dwight Hare); (5) "The Organization and Reorganization of Small Rural Schools" (David H. Monk); (6) "Technological Delivery Systems and Applications for K-12 Instruction in Rural Schools" (Bruce O. Barker); (7) "Meeting the Needs of Special Student Populations in Rural Locales" (Terry R. Berkeley, Barbara L. Ludlow); (8) "Equality of Educational Opportunity in Rural America" (Margaret S. Phelps, George Allen Prock); (9) "Resources in Rural Education" (Teri A.
