Ley, Joyce; And Others
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v12 n3 p133-41 Win 1996

While aspirations for personal and economic success were highly prized, community-minded goals for civic responsibility were ascribed far less importance. Discusses implications for rural schools and communities. (Author/TD)
