The Consolidation of Rural Schools in the United States.
Isenberg, R.M.; Taudien, Karl-Heinz
Changes in rural education and rural schools are illustrated by examining the reorganization-consolidation process. Factors which have contributed to consolidation are universal public education, compulsory attendance laws, the economic depression, improved transportation, state legislation, and rising costs of operating small school districts. Local control and teacher opposition have been deterring factors. Similarities and differences in state reorganization procedures are discussed. The educational benefits of consolidation are used to point out that hoped for results are actually derived in this process. (SW)
