Educational Policy and Rural Development: A Sociological Perspective.
Kuvlesky, William P.
A view of rural development that is basically sociological in perspective and that hinges on educational policy is presented in this paper. Rural development is defined as social development of the rural sector and its constituent social units in reference to some desired end state. The role of the educational system, especially the Land Grant college system, in the social process of rural development is described. Major conclusions are that the priority needs for rural development are that the Land Grant colleges must escape the traditional tendency for single discipline, single focus projects and programs; develop a clear set of objectives for development that are based on the perceived life goals and needs of rural people; and develop a better understanding of how educational policy can be utilized as a development tool, and then use the knowledge to serve all rural people.
