In-Service Education for Rural School Personnel.
Burdin, Joel L., Ed.; Poliakoff, Lorraine L., Ed.
This publication focuses on in-service education for rural teachers who are remote from universities or other training centers. Section 1 consists of three models for in-service programs presented at a writing conference by Lawrence Heldman, Edward Krahmer, and Lionel Orlikow. The models include specifications for a national organization to serve rural teachers' needs, the design of an individualized in-service program, and a voucher system. Section 2 offers the viewpoints of other conference attendants on implementing the models. Their considerations encompass power factors and the reluctant learner. In section 3, currently operating rural in-service teacher education programs are described. The programs have two characteristics in common. They serve large numbers of remotely based teachers (often in a wide geographic area) and the programs are brought to the teachers at the local sites. The publication also includes an introductory paper on today's schools, appendices with background information on rural America, a bibliography, and a summary of the proposal to the U.S. Office of Education which initiated this project.
