Information gathered from various countries around the world is presented in this general guide to help school administrators and teachers relate primary and secondary education to the realities and problems of rural agriculture and life. Topics include curricula, syllabuses and programs, teacher training and orientation, new teaching techniques including learning-by-doing methods in school compounds, and school farms. A major conclusion was that the integration of agricultural perspectives into general education is inseparable from the broader pattern of the educational role in rural development and of rural growth in the light of national aims and individual promises. A 73-item bibliography is included. (PS)
