This bulletin is written to help answer questions on the rural school's part in good living, to be of use to teachers, parents, and supervisors in discussion groups or in individual planning. It points out that rural communities, from poor to average to well-to-do, are making new demands on education. It shows scenes from schools that are meeting such demands through improvement-of-living curriculums. It explains how rural teachers are working, and calls attention to some of their difficulties. Sources of information are included which tell "how schools have done it." Many of the activities described in the leaflet are found chiefly in the most forward-looking programs, and should not be regarded as usual rural school practices. Neither should they be thought of as representing the entire curriculum. They do illustrate effective ways of meeting certain needs of children growing up in the open country and in small towns and villages. A bibliography is included. (Contains 41 footnotes.)
