Rural Education -- A Forward Look. Yearbook 1955 (Department of Rural Education).
National Education Association, Washington, DC. Dept. of Rural Education.
Drawing upon the 1954 National Conference on Rural Education, the Yearbook discusses major problems and possibilities arising from significant changes in rural education. Part I presents an overview of education for rural America -- its achievements, continuing problems and some suggestions for their solutions, and the challenge for the immediate future. Parts II and III give major conference addresses. Part II includes, in slightly condensed form, all papers presented in the general sessions and the 4 Assemblies; Part III gives papers from various divisions, selected as comprehensive statements or because their major content could not be incorporated into the brief statements in Part I. General areas are: community involvement, teacher shortages, business perspectives, agriculture, population trends, cultural changes, educational administration, economic changes, school district reorganization, State education departments, farm and rural incomes, rural environment, school building use, financing problems, suburban development, and personnel needs. The conference program and personnel, the history of the Charl Ormond Williams Award, a rural education bibliography, an explanation of the Department of Rural Education, and a roster of its members are also given.
