Rural Education Program--Basic Program Plans, April 1972. (Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory Rural Futures Development Strategies).
Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.
Designed for progressive implementation (1966-1977) in the Northwest Region, this program guide emphasizes rural educational change via training systems and materials which suggest and support new structural patterns and participatory decision making for rural schools and communities. Divided into three major sections (Summary Information, Program Description, and Institutional Descriptions), the bulk of this guide describes the program as follows: (1) The Rural Education Problem (rural setting, present conditions, potential for rural education improvement, and critical rural education needs); (2) General Strategy (models for field-centered training, field-based product development, and an operational setting for product development); (3) Specific Strategies (the generic learning and change process model; strategies for school-centered, community-centered, learner-centered, and support agencies-centered rural futures development; and the strategy relationships); (4) Addendum (an optional family-centered strategy); (5) Dissemination Plan; (6) Evaluation Plan; (8) Bibliography. Major program components are identified as community, school, learning environment, and support agency components and include both activities and products. (JC)
