Rural Schools: Fewer Highly Trained Teachers and Special Programs, but Better Learning Environment.
Ballou, Dale; Podgursky, Michael
Rural Development Perspectives, v10 n3 p6-16 Jun 1995
Analysis of data from the Schools and Staffing Survey, 1987-88, reveals that compared to metropolitan schools, nonmetropolitan schools are smaller, have fewer teachers with advanced degrees, and offer fewer advanced or remedial classes. However, smaller rural schools often provide smaller classes, more teacher attention, and a less stressful learning environment. Contains 24 references and 9 data tables. (Author/SV)
