The theme of Interskola '77 is identified as "Innovation and Rural Education". While the papers contained in this report range over a variety of concerns such as in-service provision and curriculum and school organization in sparsely populated areas, there is in all the papers an underlying awareness of the need to develop greater insights into the rural school's relationship with its community so that it can become an integrated and educative agency for both its pupils and those whose lives fill and form the rural community. Conference participants are identified as representing the following countries: England, Finland, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, U.S.A., Uganda, and Wales. (JC)
