Abstract

This is one of four publications dealing with the effects of population decline on rural Iowa counties. The publications are summaries of reports from a 6-year study in Greene County conducted by the Department of Economics and Sociology, Iowa State University. Education occupies a vital position in American community life. Institutions such as school are sensitive to changes in population which supports them. In the Greene County study it was important to find out how the county's schools reacted to such a change--out-migration and a decline in school age population.
