Summary

The rural population is rapidly moving into the cities in search of employment opportunity, but many of these rural migrants are unable to obtain employment due to a lack of education. To combat this situation, schools should offer more vocational education. Four premises that are vital for a successful educational program are--(1) it costs less to train students before they leave school, (2) schools must develop programs that will keep students in school, (3) schools must assume responsibility for helping students make the transition from school to the next step in life, and (4) schools and colleges must become more involved in adult education. In addition to the responsibilities of the schools, business, industry, and government should enter into full partnership with education. Further help can be given to rural youth by development of a rural education program with emphasis on agricultural production. Employment opportunities in related fields should also be made known to students. The speech concludes with several quotes of president Johnson pertaining to the importance of agriculture in the future of our nation. This speech was presented at the national outlook conference on rural youth, October 23-26, 1967, Washington, D. C., sponsored jointly by the U. S. Departments of agriculture, health, education, and welfare, interior, and labor, oeo, and the president's council on youth opportunity. (js)
