Community Schools in Rural Areas.
Dean, David H.
The role of community school programs in rural schools is discussed in this paper. Major topics are community school program elements, legislation affecting rural community school programs, indications of need for community education principles, programs to remediate rural school deficiencies, and recommendations for program development. Where research has been carried out, there are indications that dropouts have declined, that social and recreational programs have been strengthened, and that residents have enjoyed greater involvement due to community school programs. Fourteen suggestions for rural school districts interested in establishing a community education program are listed. (PS)
