HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION FOR RURAL YOUTH.
GIVIDEN, NOBLE J.
SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS HAVE BEEN CONSIDERED POOR SCHOOLS, AND MOST EFFORTS TOWARD IMPROVEMENT HAVE BEEN TO ELIMINATE THE SCHOOL BY REORGANIZATION. THE STRUGGLE FOR COMPREHENSIVENESS IS SEEN IN THIS PAPER AS THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM FACING SMALL HIGH SCHOOLS. IMPROVEMENT DEPENDS ON A RETURN TO COMMUNITY SCHOOL EMPHASIS, CONTINUED IMPROVEMENT IN LEADERSHIP AT ALL LEVELS, AND SERIOUS CONSIDERATION OF NEW IDEAS IN DESIGN OF SCHOOL BUILDINGS, INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS, AND EQUIPMENT. TWO TABLES PRESENT INFORMATION REGARDING PUPIL-TEACHER RATIOS, TUITION COSTS, AND DATA ON TEACHERS. THIS PAPER WAS PREPARED FOR PRESENTATION AT THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON PROBLEMS OF RURAL YOUTH IN A CHANGING ENVIRONMENT (SEPTEMBER 1963). (SF)
