Using Advisory Councils and Committees to Improve Vocational Programs for Rural Students.

The ideas of community involvement in vocational education via business and industry advisory councils, plus more money for rural schools, are seen as possible solutions. A list of the activities and services which may be provided by industrial and educational councils is included. (DB)
