Summary

The Centre was originally funded in 1980 for three years to undertake research on major issues and problems in rural education, to publish and disseminate results, and to act as a source of advice to government and private authorities as well as communities. Funding for the Centre has been extended through 1985, and its activities continue to be reported in a newsletter, "Rural Education Review." Research in progress continues to focus on issues related to distance education. Projects encompass analysis of the effectiveness of primary correspondence schools and schools of the air, determination of the extent of educational handicap for disabled children in rural areas, and development of learning strategies in isolated children. Commissioned by the Department of Immigration and Ethnic Affairs to evaluate the effectiveness of the Karratha Action Research Project, an adult migrant education effort focusing on English language skills, the Centre found the project successful but recommended extended financial support and substantive program changes. Studies undertaken by postgraduate students under the auspices of the Centre included pre-service education of rural school teachers, the work code of primary school children, and coping strategies of rural handicapped children.
