Title

Participatory education and grassroots development: The case of rural Appalachia.

Author

Gaventa, John; Lewis, Helen

Description

The failure of the traditional trickle-down methods of development is now well documented. Through better recognised in Third World countries, it is also central to the steady erosion of livelihoods in rural, resource-poor regions of the industrialised countries. Perhaps nowhere is more evident than in rural Appalachian communities in The United States. This report describes a programme at the Highlander Research and Education Center.
