Booknews
Challenging the notion that rural education and job training are inferior to that offered in urban areas, social scientists describe improved means to measure rural skills than those used previously; offer information regarding the structures, strengths, and weaknesses of the current rural labor market; and suggest means of professional improvement from traditional schooling through adult education. Many of the contributors are from the Economic Research Service based in Washington, D.C. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
