Rural Education: An Annotated Bibliography.
The 120-item annotated bibliography was compiled to facilitate the development of a recently approved course entitled "Topics in Rural Education" at the University of Maine at Machias. Although the dates range from 1964 to 1982, most of the materials were prepared in the 1970s and 1980s. The interrelatedness of the issues makes categorization difficult, but for the sake of order and efficiency the bibliography is organized into six sections. Section I includes those materials on rural education which provide an overview or comprehensive perspective, definitions, or demographics. Sections II-IV include materials which address major rural education issues: school organization, financing, and legislation; staff recruitment and maintenance; instruction and services. Section V provides a listing of organizations, journals, and films which deal with rural topics. Section VI lists other resources which relate to rural topics or may be of interest to those studying rural education. The bibliographic form includes complete addresses and costs. (Author/BRR)
