Summary "At the very heart of everything which concerns the Department of Rural Education are the boys and girls of the farms and the rural towns and villages of this nation. Their needs, their capabilities, their promise for the future are and should be in our minds whenever we seek to strengthen our leadership and improve the educational arrangements which serve rural people. Yet we know as a certainty all too little about the distinctive needs and potentialities of these boys and girls who grow up in rural surroundings. Some of us carry outmoded mental pictures of life on the farm. Others, noting the accelerated merging of "rural" and "urban" and the modernization of the farm, glibly assume that any distinctively rural aspects of American life have long since disappeared. Even those who sense both the diversity and the distinctiveness of rural environments lack clear understanding of the potential significance of rural living for the day-by-day development of children. Fortunately the Department is able to present as its 1951 Yearbook an illuminating study of The child in the rural environment"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2014 APA, all rights reserved)
