Introduction (Education in Rural Communities)
by The Yearbook Committee — 1952
For many years the Thirtieth Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education has served as a textbook in the field of rural education. In 1945 the need for another detailed treatment of rural education was called to the attention of the Society. Replies from leaders in rural education and outstanding superintendents in rural counties in different parts of the United States confirmed the existence of this need. Since this need was simultaneously recognized by other organizations and leaders in rural education, several important publications have recently appeared or will soon appear. None of these, however, duplicates the present yearbook. Each volume takes its place in the body of professional literature, which educators in rural communities need to study in order to do their lobs still better.
