Problems Facing Rural Schools.
Stewart, C. E.; And Others
Problems facing rural Scottish schools range from short term consideration of daily operation to long term consideration of organizational alternatives. Addressed specifically, such problems include consideration of: (1) liaison between a secondary school and its feeder primary schools; (2) preservice teacher training for work in small, isolated primary schools to combat the effect of professional and social isolation; (3) the impact of alien ways of life on the small school and its traditions; (4) degree of personal restriction in the lives of small community teachers; (5) day workshops for two or more rural schools in a 10 to 15 mile area; (6) the relative disadvantage of a rural child who lacks a peer group; (7) inservice teacher training and effective followup and consideration of teacher-tutors and an Advisors Resource Distribution Center; (8) provision of secondary education, focusing on whether or not, after completing primary school, children should transfer to a distant and large secondary school, receive secondary education at the local level, or complete four years of secondary education at the local level before those qualified transfer out of the community for tertiary education; (9) community expectations vs the school as change agent; (10) the relative efficiency of the small school; (11) the role of the parent in the small school; and (12) involvement of local experts in the small school.
