Toward An American Rural Renaissance: Realizing Human Resource Development During the Decade of the Eighties. Final Technical Report. SRDC Series No. 76.
Gudenberg, Karl A., Ed.
In late 1980 several regional and national meetings were convened to develop a set of proposed national goals for linking education and economic development in rural America in the 1980s; the 9 commissioned papers in this report provide background information for the overall project and an appendix contains the resulting 10 proposed national goals. The papers include: "Rural America: The Present Realities and Future Prospects" by William P. Kuvlesky and James H. Copp; "Nature, Types and Scale of Rural Development" by Frances Hill; "The Role of Investment Capital in Rural Development" by Lloyd Brace; "Balancing Technological and Human Resources Development: A New Priority for Rural America" by Roger Blobaum; and "Rural Land Use: A Need for New Priorities" by Wendell Fletcher and Charles E. Little. Other papers address: "Linking Education and Local Development: An International Perspective" by Jonathan Sher; "Enhancing Traditional and Innovative Rural Support Services" by Mary A. Agria; "Toward a More Rational Education-Economic Development Connection in Rural America: The Collaborative Model" by Karl A. Gudenberg; and "State-of-the-Art Report: Exemplary Rural Education and Economic Development Initiatives" by Susan J. White. The 15-page appendix presents in turn the 10 priority issues of the conferences, identifies a central problem for each issue, formulates a goal in answer to the problem, synthesizes the discussion, and provides comments.
