Urban-Rural Problems. Contemporary Social Problems Series.
Taylor, Lee
Various social problems are created by migration of low-income rural people into urban areas. These people are classified "low income" because their material level-of-living is often less than that found in urban areas. The dominant national values for material well-being are based upon urban middle class standards, thus creating a social problem due to the value conflicts surrounding the programs designed to raise the level-of-living of rural people. One possible solution for improving this condition is to encourage and prepare rural youth for higher educational and occupational aspirations. Since the most desirable training systems are located and developed in urbanized areas, rural youth must go to the city to benefit from them, inasmuch as rural education facilities that will meet the needs of both urban and rural areas have not been established. Government and representation problems arise when rural and urban people interact, making it necessary to regulate the new interactional patterns. (CM)
