The United Front in Rural Education

by John. S. Carroll - 1952

In this review of the condition of education in rural America we have been brought closer to the variety of problems facing people in the different sections of the country. We have learned about the ways in which these problems are being met, and we have seen heartening evidences of progress being made on many fronts in fulfilling democracy's promise of equal educational opportunity for all the children of the United States. Our present concern is to examine more closely the results of some significant movements among lay-citizen and professional groups to improve our rural communities and their schools.
