Community Development in Rural Appalachia.
Doak, E. Dale
An Appalachia Educational Laboratory Expert Opinion Survey ranked the need for changing attitudes within and about Appalachia and the need for educational leadership as the two most important problems to be faced within the next 5 years. In this paper, three situations were described as typical attempts to change the educational scene in Appalachia. It was noted that a total community development program must be the goal. The concept of community development described in the paper included not only educational development but development of the economic, health, religious, government, agriculture, social, welfare, and business life of the community. A proposed action plan suggested goals of the project, means for goal achievement, and staffing. The plan called for a focused development of all institutions rather than education alone. (PS)
