Building strong ties between Appalachian schools and communities was the topic of the Appalachian Regional Commission's October 2002 annual conference (Maryville, Tennessee). Main speakers focused on maintaining a long-term perspective on investments in education, creating rural "places of opportunity" that can retain educated people, meeting the challenge to educate every child, and recognizing the central importance of reading. Fifteen sessions are briefly described. (SV)
