Imagining Rural Life: Schooling as a Sense of Place.
Bushnell, Mary
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v15 n2 p80-89 Fall 1999
In a reborn rural community populated by former urbanites, a small private school established by newcomers provides a place where upper-middle-class newcomer families negotiate their sense of rural place and contest that sense with working-class long-time residents' concept of rurality. Former urbanites' conception of rural community emerges as imagined and situational. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/SV)
