Changes in the structure and operation of Saskatchewan's rural education system were examined. The aim was to find ways to equalize educational opportunity and raise the level of education. Data were obtained from: (1) public opinion derived from community forums, communities and organizations' briefs, and hearings at which representatives of communities and organizations testified; and (2) 4 separate questionnaires sent to secretary-treasurers of larger school units, superintendents, local school district boards, and teachers. This report discusses the: (1) problems in education as seen by the province's rural people; (2) environmental change and rural education; (3) regrouping of educational facilities; (4) larger units of administration; (5) educational finance, both expenditures and revenues; (6) staffing Saskatchewan schools; (7) retention of pupils; (8) continuation to higher education; (9) vocational education; and (10) continuing education for adults. Also given are a summary of the public's solutions to the educational problems and some recommendations by the Royal Commission on Agriculture and Rural Life. (NQ)
