Project OUTCRIE represents an attempt by the College of Education at Ohio University, the Meigs Local School District, and the Meigs community to reverse the poor reading achievement and lack of academic stimulation of children in Appalachian schools. Teacher education is the nucleus of Project OUTCRIE's thrust. The project has three major components: (a) 20 interns, who are recent graduates of teacher education programs, receive professional training in a competency-based, field-based teacher education program leading to a Master of Education degree with a specialization in reading; (b) graduate courses are offered in the cooperative public schools, and tuition costs for these courses are waived for every teacher in the Meigs Local School District in an effort to upgrade the knowledge and expertise of these professionals to teach reading; and (c) the reading program and curriculum in the Meigs Local School District are being revised so that they can become more conducive to the needs and interests of Appalachian students and specifically to the children of the Meigs Local School District.
