Rural America in the Global Economy: Socioeconomic Trends.
McGranahan, David A.
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v10 n3 p139-48 Win 1994
Rural families in the 1990s have less to support their children and schools than a decade earlier: rural poverty (particularly among children), single-parent families, and maternal employment have increased whereas education and incomes of young adults have decreased. Although education has increased in importance for jobs, rural schools systems have to do more with fewer resources. (Author/SV)
