Toward an American Rural Renaissance: Realizing Rural Human Resource Development during the Decade of the Eighties. Final Technical Report.
Gudenberg, Karl A.
The future of rural America depends on the abilities of diverse interest groups and leaders to piece together educational and economic resources in creative ways, fitted to the needs of their respective regions and communities. It has become essential that rural persons be plugged into national and international production, marketing, and governmental strategies. An examination of the issues and problems associated with the educational and economic development of rural America points to 10 needs areas. These areas are determination of the realities of the changing face of rural America; the nature, types, and scale of rural development; balancing rural human resource and technological development; linking land use and economic development; linking education and training with rural economic development; enhancing traditional and innovative rural support services; serving special rural interest groups; and rural coalition building. Specific goals for solving problems in each of these areas have emerged from a series of regional conferences and from a national conference hosted by the National Institute for Work and Learning.
