Summary

The White House Conference on Rural Education (1944) called together 230 of the country's best known rural educators to lay plans for the peacetime establishment of our educational system on a better basis than we have ever known before (with Federal aid when necessary). One of the dynamic outcomes of the four conference sessions was compilation of the Charter for the Education of Rural Children. The goals stated that every rural child had the right to: a satisfactory, modren elementary and secondary education; an educational program that bridged the gap between home and school, and school and adult life; health services, guidance programs, libraries, recreational facilities, lunch programs, and transportation at the public's expense (if needed); teachers, supervisors, and administrators who understood rural problems; educational and guidance programs 12 months of the year and no less than 9 continuous months of school; satisfactory, modern buildings; participation in community life and culture through the school; a strong local school system that provided all services needed; and the tax resources of his community, State, and nation used to guarantee him an American standard of educational opportunity. "These are the rights of every rural child because they are the rights of every child regardless of race, or color, or situation, wherever they may live under the Flag of the United States of America." (AH)
