Summary

A paper by the American Council on Rural Special Education formally requests that the National Commission on Excellence in Education recognize the differences between rural and non-rural schools and provide appropriately different strategies for implementing Commission recommendations. Factors of rural schools which should be considered by policymakers are noted: rural schools include 67% of all schools and serve 33% of all school children; rural areas have higher poverty levels than non-rural areas and are rapidly growing in population without a growth in tax bases; rural schools, serve greater percentages of handicapped children, have serious staffing inadequacies, and suffer problems of isolation, high personnel attrition, and inadequate computer resources; and preservice training programs do not motivate or prepare students for rural teaching. Eight recommendations for policymakers call for recognition of diverse rural subcultures, support for innovative teacher training programs addressing areas of critical need, development of career ladders and merit pay systems designed to retain quality rural personnel, support for essential inservice training programs, adequate support for rural special education services, investigation and support for alternative service delivery systems, investigation of technological alternatives, and adequate data collection regarding the quality of rural education.
