Educational Needs of Rural Women and Girls. Report of the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs (January 1977).
Clarenbach, Kathryn F.
Presenting the results of a series of four consultations conducted by the National Advisory Council on Women's Educational Programs in the Southwest, Midwest, West, and Appalachia to investigate the educational needs of rural females, this report includes the following: (1) Highlights and Recommendations (nine recommendations); (2) Rural Women in Profile (a statistical description); (3) The Needs Defined: A Report of the Consultations (personal growth and recognition, political participation and legal rights, health education and health care, child care and early childhood and special education, counseling and career development, elementary and secondary education, preservation of rural values, an educational delivery system to meet rural needs provision for feedback, replication of successful demonstration projects, and re-thinking rural eligibility criteria); (4) Review of National Programs (Federal agencies and national private sector programs directing or having the potential to direct resources toward the education of rural females); (5) Annotated Bibliography (74 citations); and (6) Appendices (agenda and participants for the four consultations and members of the Council's Information Resources Committee and consultants to the consultations). Important conclusions cited are: little attention is being directed to rural females by either rural educators/developers or women's education advocates; public statistics with specific rural female categories are virtually non-existent.
