Post, David; Stambach, Amy
Journal of Research in Rural Education, v15 n2 p106-20 Fall 1999
Analyzes the debate over closure of a rural Pennsylvania high school and consolidation with a much larger school in the state's geographically largest school district. Discusses parent survey results, which highlight the enduring social tension between the centralizing efforts of governing bodies and the interests of local communities in maintaining their identity and parent control of education.
