Economic Development: A Rural Perspective. Issues in Training and Employment.
Kuhlman, Judy; And Others
This issue paper, meant to stimulate discussion within the employment and training community, offers three different perspectives on improving conditions in rural areas. However, all of these perspectives share common themes: a belief in the ability of rural areas to recover economically, a commitment to ensuring that this occurs, and the use of job training programs as a major component of that activity. The sections of the paper are as follows: "Introduction: The Rural Dilemma" (Jerald T. McNeil); "Economic Development through Customized Training" (Judy Kuhlman); "Strengthening a Rural Economy" (Linda Odum); and "The Marriage of JTPA (Job Training Partnership Act) and Economic Development in Rural Northern Michigan" (Roberta Volker-Foreman).
