National Policy, Local Interpretation: The American Rural Curriculum, 1897-1921.
Feldman, Doug
Rural Educator, v21 n1 p8-14 Fall 1999
The factory model of organization that resulted from the ascension of industry and economic expansion between 1897 and 1921 was applied to education as well as business. National recommendations aimed to standardize rural education, but local application of these unilateral templates reflected local rural cultures. Examples discussed are agricultural, industrial, and health education; libraries; and consolidation. (TD)
