The Education of Nonmetro Blacks. Rural Development Research Report No. 21.
Fratoe, Frank A.
Nonmetro (rural) blacks continue to lag behind metro (urban and suburban) blacks and whites of all residence categories on rates of graduation from high school and college, functional literacy, preprimary and college enrollment, and adult education. Nonmetro blacks are also less likely to be in the labor force, hold white collar jobs, or have incomes above the poverty level, probably as a result of obtaining less education. Economic development of nonmetro areas, improvement of educational services, career/vocational training programs, and employment training programs are policy directions to be examined to improve the educational status of nonmetro groups.
