Rural Education Programs That Work. Sharing Ideas.
Compiled for the purpose of encouraging the sharing of ideas concerning viable rural education programs, this manual provides descriptions of activities in the fields of adult, community, and vocational education which have been successful in serving rural populations. The information is divided into three areas: state projects, national projects, and informational resources. Each entry includes the name of the state which sponsors the program, the program title, a program description, and a contact person. The adult education programs primarily focus on adult basic education and literacy education. The community education programs are geared to meet the needs of the community which they serve. The vocational education programs cover various fields, including business management, nursing, industrial arts, farm management, home economics, and vocational guidance. The scope of the national programs includes entrepreneurship training, agricultural occupations, vocational teacher education, rural career guidance, vocational education for Indian populations, programs for the handicapped, and workshops for community development. The last section lists informational resources. (CM)
