Hicks, Bruno G.
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v13 n1 p57-63 Spr 1997
Rural schools perceive small size, geographic isolation, and sparse resources as limiting factors in meeting new science standards. A study of an integrated curriculum in a rural middle-level program found that this model, based on Beane's integrative curriculum planning strategies, had no trouble meeting the national life-science curriculum standards outlined by the National Research Council.
