MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this study is to examine the difficulties of financing rural public schools in Michigan from 1979-90, focusing primarily on a case study of Ubly Community Schools, a rural K -12 school district located in the area known as the "Thumb" of Michigan. Although there are relatively few studies of rural schools in Michigan, several regional and national studies have been conducted throughout the 1970s and 1980s on rural· schools and rural school finance, and I have used them as a background for exploring rural school finance in Michigan, and particularly, the Ubly school district. Although this study focuses primarily on the years 1979-1990, in some instances, I make references to earlier periods as a basis for comparisons or for including information that is especially relevant.
