Economic Development and Educational Status in Appalachian Kentucky.
DeYoung, Alan J.
Comparative Education Review, v29 n1 p47-67 Feb 1985
Evaluates competing explanations for the relatively poor educational performance in Appalachian Kentucky. Concludes that substantial economic diversification would probably result in improved educational status. Warns against reliance on extractive industries and presents data showing increased income from mining to be significantly correlated with below-average student achievement and lower per-pupil expenditures.
