Rural Education/Rural Special Education Literature Review. Bibliography and Abstracts.
Kansas Univ., Lawrence. Dept. of Special Education.
In the United States, 67% of all schools are in rural areas and 33% of all school children attend rural schools. The availability of rural-specific information is imperative for rural and urban special educators, administrators, parents and others who come into daily contact with children and youth with disabilities. This collection of 105 rural-related document annotations provides practitioners with a resource to better understand, define, and describe rural special education. Materials abstracted include position papers, statistical studies, descriptions of successful model programs, and case studies. Articles deal with teacher salaries, parent and paraprofessional relationships, special education technologies, and other issues relevant to rural special education. The sources of this bibliography include professional journals, newspapers, magazines, government publications, and ERIC documents, dated from 1978 through 1987. (ALL)
