The Sourcebook: A Directory of Resources for Small and Rural School Districts.
A 1983 directory of resources for small and rural school districts lists resources for improving schools, national resources, foundations as funding sources, and state educational agency staff who can assist rural schools with information and technical assistance requests. The first section describes school improvement resources/projects by region: Midwest (16), Northeast (3), South (14), and West (14). The second chapter offers five national organizations for rural education, seven national education groups with rural interests, five sample projects in rural education research, five special projects for rural schools, and four relevant offices within the Department of Education. Private funding sources are covered in the third chapter, which notes publications listing foundations, cites 5 foundations which gave the most to rural education in 1982, summarizes components of good proposals, and lists 51 rural education projects which received foundation grants in 1981. Names, addresses, and telephone numbers of state education department rural specialists for 47 states are listed in the fourth chapter. A bibliography lists books by topic (rural education and rural development; policy, finance, demographics, and overviews; school size and consolidation; curriculum and staff development; youth employment, rural development, and vocational education), and also 10 newsletters and journals of interest to small/rural school educators.
