Rocky Too: The Challenges of Rural Education in the 1980's.
Sher, Jonathan P.
Rural education is finally gaining the attention it has been denied for so long. Slight gains, such as federal recognition, have been made. This has been a worldwide trend. A study of rural education conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development details the state of worldwide rural education in a fifteen point outline, with emphasis on finance, government, research, educational needs, equal education, teacher education, educational reform, school community relationships, student achievement, and governmental assistance.
