Status of Education in Rural Virginia.
Hoyt, Eugene G.; And Others
The primary use for the papers presented in this report is to provide ideas and information to the Rural Affairs Study Commission members. The 1st paper is an analysis of some factors caused by inadequate financing. It is noted that rural communities have smaller, less efficient schools; less well-prepared teachers; smaller salaries; fewer supervisors of instruction; fewer course offerings; and higher dropout rates. The 2nd paper describes early childhood education programs in Virginia. Major recommendations are that early childhood education programs be established through regional agencies; that the state aid formula include provision for early childhood education programs; that state aid be provided for comprehensive school health services; and that day care programs be coordinated with kindergarten and elementary school programs. The 3rd paper describes higher education needs. Recommendations in this area include increased state financial support for higher education and the establishment of more comprehensive community colleges. (PS)
